Yves Caracatzanis, director of Renault Romania: We uphold measures to support development of new vehicle market

Director of Renault Romania, Yves Caracatzanis (photo R) declared on Tuesday at Titu, that the French group upholds the measures that support the new vehicle market development, Rabla scrappage programme being important because it allows customers to have access to new and modern vehicles.

The statement was made in a joint conference with Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu, on a working visit to Renault Technology Centre in Titu, Dambovita County.

As regards the market for new vehicles and second-hand cars, we uphold the measures supporting the development of new vehicle market, Rabla scrappage programme is important to us because it allows customers to have access to new and modern vehicles, so for us this represents a major aspect. I saw the results on imported vehicles at the end of February, we are closely following the evolution of the ratio and balance between the percentage of new vehicles and imported vehicles in Romania, said the director of Renault Romania, Yves Caracatzanis, when asked about removing the environmental stamp and the alternative found by the Government for its replacement.

The director of Renault Romania also introduced the topics discussed with Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu.

“There are five major points that we discussed, firstly, the new vehicles’ market and the topic of the fleet renewal, another topic of interest is education, everything that allows us to prepare for the future and to have an education system which corresponds to our needs, then obviously the competitiveness, the infrastructure. Here, these are the topics that we discussed with the Prime Minister, in a constructive and partnership spirit,” said the director of Renault Romania, Yves Caracatzanis.


PM Grindeanu tells Renault officials infrastructure is one of Gov’t priorities


Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu assured on Tuesday the Renault representatives, after a visit at the Technical Centre in Titu (southern County of Arges), that infrastructure and the Sibiu – Pitesti segment in particular is one of the government’s priorities.

“The Renault Technical Centre is to Romania an example of how a successful company should develop,” asserted the Premier.

He reminded that the Titu-based Centre is Renault’s second of this kind, after the one in France.

“I’m not the first, but hopefully I’ll be the last to discuss about infrastructure. This has been a topic here ever since 2007. I believe it is time to stop talking and get to facts. I assured the Renault representatives that the infrastructure, in particular the Sibiu – Pitesti segment is one of our priorities,” said Grindeanu.

As regards the infrastructure development, he said he wishes its pace to be “categorically different.”

“It is time to cease talking, especially from the infrastructure point of view, and have things done. We have the money, it is the European money Romania so far has been incapable to spend. For this I believe the past governments jointly carry the blame. I don’t want the government I head to be part of this list,” said Sorin Grindeanu.

The Premier stated that he discussed with the French company’s representatives about education and school tailoring to the market demands, alongside European funds and public policies in connection with the future legislative projects.

The head of the government added that he took a drive-test in Titu with the Dacia Duster with automatic transmission and an electric car, too.
