Arges Prefecture: Renault management vows Dacia factory remains in Mioveni
The Arges Prefecture announced on Tuesday that the Renault Director General for External Relations, Virginie Guerin, “assured” the Romanian authorities that the Dacia-Renault plant will not be relocated, but will remain in Mioveni, as the French company intends to carry on new investments for the factory, Mediafax informs.
On Monday, Arges County Prefect Mihail Oprescu had an official meeting with Director Virginie Guerin and with Gabriel Sicoe, Secretary General with Dacia Renault.
Arges County Prefect Mihai Oprescu was informed by the Renault representatives they will continue to invest in Pitesti, without specifying what investments are envisaged.
In discussions with the Romanian authorities, the Renault Director for External Relations told the Romanian authorities that the large number of second-hand cars sold on the local market is affecting the plant’s production and stressed the importance of building the Pitesti-Sibiu highway, which would lead to a economy of EUR 30 for every car that comes out of the gate of the Dacia plant in Mioveni.
