The program of recycling of old cars may be terminated in 2017
The Russian government started talking about the possible abolition of some measures aimed at support of domestic car industry.
In particular, in the framework of the budget cuts likely will have to abandon the program of recycling of old vehicles.
Meanwhile, opponents of the initiative believe that the abolition of the recycling program will drive the automobile market in «the abyss» because more than half of new cars sold in the country only because there are government programs to stimulate demand. Even a partial lifting of these measures will lead to a drop in sales, and hence to the collapse of the market.
