Interest payment subsidy

On 23 April 2016, with Decree No. 344, the Russian Government prolonged the validity of the subsidy scheme, introduced by Decree No. 364, by approving the allocation of 11.3 billion RUB (ca. 170.64 million USD as of the date of the issuance of the legal act). The new budget represents an increase by close to RUB 10 billion from the RUB 1.5 billion allocated to this scheme in 2015. In addition, the value of the cars that are eligible for state support has been increased from 1 million RUB to 1.150 million RUB.

The state measure is approved as part of the framework of the sub-program "Automotive industry" of the state program of the Russian Federation "Development of the industry and increasing of its competitiveness".

The GTA includes state guarantees and other financial incentives that are likely to affect the restructuring and performance of firms facing international competition, whether from imports, in export markets, and from foreign subsidiaries.
