Production networks of the Asian automobile industry: regional or global?

Jetin, B. (2018).  Production networks of the Asian automobile industry: regional or global?. International Journal of Automotive Technology and Management. 18(4), 302-328.

Asia is the host of some of the largest automobile markets and top global brands. It has recently taken several initiatives to foster its regional integration, such as Asia-wide trade agreements and infrastructure projects. This article examines the impact of these initiatives on the automobile fragmented production networks of Northeast, Southeast Asia and South Asia to see if they are becoming more regionalised or globalised, and to see if an Asia-wide production network is emerging. We focus on automobile component trade as a proxy of network trade and follow its evolution over the period 2001–2016 at the Asian and subregional level with a special emphasis on two major players, China and Japan. Our results show that a regionalisation process is under way between the three subregions, driven by China and Japan. However, this process is still slow due to the persistence of a high level of protectionism between the three subregions.

The War of Two Green Deals

Another kind of deal, another kind of artist

The new European Commission intends to make its Green Pact the core of its mandate and promote a "Green Deal". In the United States, the Democratic primary is placed under the same sign. However, convergence is largely bogus, as there are strong disagreements between Europeans and Americans as well as between Americans and Europeans.

La guerre des "Green Deal"

Another kind of deal, another kind of artist

La nouvelle Commission européenne entend faire de son Pacte Vert le cœur de son mandat et promouvoir un "Green Deal". Aux Etats-Unis, la primaire démocrate est placée sous le même signe. La convergence est toutefois largement factice tant les désaccords sont forts entre les européens et américains aussi bien qu’entre américains et entre européens. lire la suite

Renault-PSA : l’un est intercontinentalisé, l’autre pas

Renault dans le rouge en France. Mais ailleurs?

Les résultats commerciaux des deux français ont été publiés la semaine dernière et, derrière l’homologie de façade que représentent la proximité des volumes (3,75 millions pour Renault et 3,48 millions pour PSA) et leurs baisses (- 3,4% pour Renault et -10% pour PSA), les chiffres viennent souligner les profondes différences des deux constructeurs. lire la suite

Renault-PSA: one is intercontinental, the other is not.

Renault dans le rouge en France. Mais ailleurs?

The commercial results of the two French carmakers were published last week and, behind the facade homology represented by the similarity of volumes (3.75 million for Renault and 3.48 million for PSA) and their decline (-3.4% for Renault and -10% for PSA), the figures underline the significant differences between the two manufacturers.
 
Thus, seen from France, one would get the impression that PSA is outperforming Renault. In most segments except B, Renault products are barely outperforming Peugeot products and the latter obviously give PSA a "pricing power" that Renault is struggling to conquer. The financial results corresponding to the commercial results published last week are likely to confirm this in February.

Et si Bruno Le Maire s’inspirait de Donald Trump…

In the port of Tanger Med, low-cost Renault await...

Autoactu publiait vendredi deux articles qui, involontairement, se renvoyaient l’un à l’autre.
 
L’un, signé de Laurent Bodin, traitait du sort de l’usine terminale PSA de Mulhouse qui a vu partir la production du nouveau 2008 vers l’Espagne en vertu de la doctrine bien connue désormais selon laquelle les sites français n’ont pas à assembler de véhicules des segments A et B, fussent-ils des SUV. 
L’autre, signé de Bertrand Rakoto, analysait le volet automobile du nouvel accord de libre-échange entre les Etats-Unis, le Canada et le Mexique et les contraintes qu’il impose aux constructeurs pour limiter la mise en concurrence entre les pays à hauts salaires et les pays à bas salaires et les délocalisations vers le Mexique.

What if Bruno Le Maire was inspired by Donald Trump...

In the port of Tanger Med, low-cost Renault await...

The weekly column by Bernard Jullien is also on www.autoactu.com.

Last Friday Autoactu released two articles that unintentionally referred to each other.
 
One, signed by Laurent Bodin, dealt with the fate of PSA's Mulhouse assembly plant, which saw the production of the new 2008 model leave for Spain under the now well-known doctrine that French sites should not assemble vehicles from segments A and B, even if they are SUVs.
The other, signed by Bertrand Rakoto, analysed the automobile component of the new free trade agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico and the constraints it imposes on manufacturers to limit competition between high-wage and low-wage countries and relocation to Mexico.

Renault : sortir de la politique de l'autruche

La même scène vue autrement

Comme pour marquer sa différence et/ou pour souligner ce qui avait pu l’opposer à Thierry Bolloré, Clotilde Delbos a entamé son intérim à la direction générale du groupe Renault par un "profit warning" : non, le retour à un cash flow positif au second semestre ne permettra pas de compenser le cash flow négatif de 700 millions d’euros du premier; non, le chiffre d’affaires ne sera pas constant mais baissera de 3 à 4% de même que la marge opérationnelle sera plutôt de 5% que de 6% comme annoncé en juillet ; non, le plan 2022 ne vas pas être tenu et il est urgent de le redéfinir pour que chacun sache où il va.

Renault: getting out of the ostrich policy

La même scène vue autrement
As if to mark his difference and/or to highlight what might have opposed her to Thierry Bolloré (Renault's former CEO, recently laid off), Clotilde Delbos (appointed to replace him) began her interim period at the head office of the Renault group with a "profit warning": no, the return to positive cash flow in the second half of the year will not offset the €700 million negative cash flow of the first half; no, revenue will not be constant but will fall by 3 to 4% and the operating margin will be 5% rather than 6% as announced in July; no, the 2022 plan will not be implemented and it is urgent to redefine it so that everyone knows where he is going.
 
She did not just talk to the analysts. She also spoke on Tuesday in a video for employees to tell them that the "Drive the Future" plan had to be taken up again because the market has changed over the past two years and that "unfortunately, the situation did not improve during the summer" and requires that the strategy be adjusted to "get Renault back on track".
