DUBAI MOTOR SHOW 2003: A world industry

December 2003
Middle East;Dec2003, Issue 340, p52
The motor car was the one of first major consumer products to be both mass produced and mass marketed, and was the basis of the West's economic growth and industrial preeminence. Car making is now the main industrial employer in the world, dominated by a handful of major groups of which General Motors is the largest. Taking advantage of cheaper labor and the tax incentives offered by host governments, car manufacturers are increasingly setting up assembly lines in developing and transitional countries. Great Britain's MG Rover Group is intending to build its all-new small car in India, and both Volkswagen Audi Group (VAG) and BMW are investing heavily in China.
