Default GM to boost spending on China-made parts

GM to boost spending on China-made parts


General Motors Corp. plans to boost spending on Chinese-made parts 25 percent a year until 2010 because of lower production costs and China's rising vehicle sales, Bloomberg News reported today.

The automaker ships about 20 million parts a month from China on average, including electronics, wheels and sun visors, Bo Andersson, GM's purchasing chief, told reporters in Beijing today. He declined to say how much the company spends on Chinese-made parts each year.

GM, Volkswagen AG and other automakers are taking advantage of lower wages in China to cut costs, according to Bloomberg. China's exports of auto parts may rise as much as 40 percent next year, according to the country's commerce ministry.

"We have been growing extremely fast in the emerging markets," Andersson said. "The first focus for the purchasing group is to localize as much as we can."

GM's sales in China through September rose 17 percent to 753,686 and may reach 1 million by year's end, spokesman John McDonald said this week.

I guess GM decided that their reliability is too high and they don't have enough recalls. I guess I will NEVER buy another GM in my life, I wasn't planning on it though.

VVVVVVV HAHAHA that reminds me when I came out of work a few years ago I had this scathing note on my car about how I should buy an AMERICAN car. LOL It was probably left buy some Mexican made Tahoe driving douche.
