Shanghai (Gasgoo)- On Sept. 20, China Auto Parts Annual Conference was held in Guangzhou. On the conference, participants seemed to agree that China auto industry has begun its own innovative development rather than following others’ development patterns. With the development in environmental protection, energy saving technology and new energy vehicle, China local auto brands have entered innovative development phase.
Shi Jianhua, Deputy Secretary General of China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) also pointed out on the conference that China auto brands will face new challenges. Besides, in his opinion, SUV will become the most popular segment by the end of this year.
