The Policy on Auto Trade, being put into effect since August 10, 2005, outlined the overall principle of vehicle trade and target of government management of the industry.

He said that the government will introduce competition mechanism into auto trade industry and encourage companies to join in international competition.

The new policy also attached great importance in the protection of consumers' interests, said the official.

The official noted that with the rapid development of auto industry in the country, the old policies on auto trade have failed to meet the demand of new situation.
