GM Sets Russia Strategy

General Motors approved its strategy for Russia, which includes investments of more than $1 billion over the next several years, said GM Russia and CIS general manager Jim Bovenzi.

The company will reach output in the next few years of up to 350,000 cars, most of which will come from its existing factory in St. Petersburg. That factory has seen $300 million in investment so far.

GM currently has ventures with AvtoVAZ, where it makes the Chevrolet Niva, and GAZ, where it will make the Aveo model. The company said no new joint ventures are planned.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
