The greetings telegram reads, in part:
“Such a large-scale investment project is a major step in the development of our cooperation with one of the world’s biggest car makers. The leaders of the Japanese car industry are already successfully developing their production in Russia.
At a time when the world economy is suffering from a major crisis, the flow of capital into such a powerful industry as car-making is graphic evidence of the stability of Russian economy.
Toyota is a very popular brand in this country. It is a highly reliable, comfortable and eco-friendly car.”
The new Toyota Motors complex will create 600 jobs in the Moscow Region. About $100 million have been invested in the project.
