AvtoVAZ on Target

Russia’s biggest car maker, AvtoVAZ, said it was confident it would meet its 2000 export target of 98,500 vehicles as it had fulfilled its nine-month export plan.

AvtoVAZ, which produces about 700,000 vehicles a year, exported 68,000 cars in the first nine months of 2000.

"We have every reason to believe that in the remaining three months we will meet the planned target, set by the board of directors, to export 98,500 automobiles," AvtoVAZ said in a statement, quoting its senior sales manager Vladimir Kuchai.
