Politico: French president calls for legislation to protect European automakers from Chinese and US competition

According to French leader Emmanuel Macron, the EU should protect its industry, as the US does, and pass a special law to protect automakers on the continent in the face of competition from China, as well as in response to the US policy to stimulate domestic production by restricting access to its market of European companies, writes Politico.


Speaking on the France 2 TV channel, the French President criticized the European Union for its "too open" position in contrast to its competitors.

We see China defending its industry, the US defending its industry, and Europe being an open house.

said Macron.

Recall that earlier the French president led a campaign against the recent law to reduce inflation, adopted in the United States, which refers to the need to buy components for electric vehicles from American manufacturers. In response, the EU filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization, saying the law violated international trade rules by discriminating against foreign manufacturers.

To counter these measures by the US authorities, Macron, along with German Chancellor Scholz, agreed to push the European Commission to prepare responses to the US Inflation Reduction Act, Politico notes.

              There, taking into account the "Lada".
              And besides, the Russian Federation for Renault was a market where mainly budget models were supplied, based on old generations - Logan / Sandero, Arcana, Kaptur, Duster - these cars are on the Clio 2 platform, and they produce Clio 5.

                  Apparently, not too bad, just went for it.
                  Moreover, our market has never been a priority.
                  You can see it in the models.

                  We were also left without Renault, and without units for the same West.

        Let them introduce a price ceiling (additional tax) on cars from the USA and China. And Germany had to transfer production to Russia, instead they ran from the market, otherwise the owner would punish.

    Well, the best way is to transfer the production of cars to Russia. The energy industry is well-established and many times cheaper than in Europe. This means that the competitiveness of the car is very high.

      Firstly, as soon as they give a hint, then you can start counting the days until demobilization, the Americans will quickly find either a mistress or any other skeleton in the closet, even Macron, even Scholz. Secondly, they go to the Japanese mountain, after their help to Ukraine, I personally will ride a donkey around Moscow, but not on their car, these geeks need to be finished off economically, let them start life from scratch, they deserve it!

    The fleeing Western firms made production in Russia with an eye on the Europop: the production of engines, spare parts, even a partial supply of cars of Western brands.

          You are right, there is no reason for joy yet, when Europe begins to die and freeze from hunger, then another thing, I will dance for joy, and if Macron and Scholz with all their brethren are hung up on a lamppost and their predecessors, I am like Hillary Clinton I'll say wow!

    Yep, it's gone. I hope that Macron will go all the way in protecting his interests, and not raise his paws up in front of the hegemon, as Scholz has already done, apparently. I do not think that Europe will want to defend itself against the States. Well, then France will have one. She has experience in the struggle for continental Europe with the Anglo-Saxons. old, true smile

        Yes, because for some reason the sausage wants to be eaten, apparently. Macron snaps, but for now he wants to go hand in hand with the sausage. Let's see if he keeps kicking if Scholz doesn't want to support him.
        Macron has already raised the topic of increasing European independence from the States several times, so at least he has been thinking about this for quite some time. But whether it translates words and thoughts into real actions, we still have to see. I wouldn't say anything here.

    In the secondary market, a car made in the USA will cost less than its counterpart in Europe. Why? Repair cost. As a repairman, I need to purchase keys to service 1-2 American cars a year - not profitable.
