Public procurement localisation

On February 24, 2012, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) of the People's Republic of China released the 2012 Official Vehicles Procurement List (Draft Version for soliciting public opinions). In accordance with this List, 412 kinds of autos are on the governmental procurement list, all are Chinese made brands, and all foreign made or JV made cars are excluded from public procurement list.
 
It is estimated that total cars procurement budget for various levels of Chinese governments is more than RMB 100 billion yuan (more than 15 billion USD). This List is open for public comments and soliciting public opinions till March 9, 2012, then the MIIT will released the final and formal list. If no amendments made on the formal List, foreign auto giants, such as VW (Germany), GM (US), Toyota (Japan) and Nissan (Japan) or their JV companies in China will lose the world's biggest government procurement market.

Chinese government has not adopted the final version of this List after the deadline of March 19, 2012; however, it is estimated that the final version will be released recently and there is small chance for foreign made or JV made cars to be added to the final Official Vehicles Procurement List this year.
