China FAW Group Corporation
August 2, 2017
for FAW and Chang'an Automobile, which belong to the same four major automobile groups in China, the exchange of leaders is of great significance, especially for FAW. FAW is the "eldest son of the Republic", but its performance in the independent performance sector (wuyongsheng) has been unsatisfactory for many years. FAW sedan lost 950million yuan in 2016. Although it has cooperative relations with a number of foreign automobile brands, FAW has not significantly improved its core technology and manufacturing level. As a "national car", the Red Flag brand has spent tens of billions but still failed to build a car recognized by consumers. The "anti-corruption storm" that has lasted for several years has left FAW Group full of holes. Xu Ping, who has just confirmed his transfer from FAW, was transferred to FAW Group just two years ago from Dongfeng Motor, which has worked for more than 30 years. However, Xu Ping is 60 years old and is about to retire. It is difficult to carry out drastic reform. His leadership work in FAW for two years is more of a transition. However, under Xu Ping's leadership, FAW's independent business has improved, First half of 2017
