Rolls-Royce eyes Vietnam market

(VOV) - The famous UK automobile manufacturer Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is expected to establish agents in Vietnam and Nigeria by 2014, according to the Voice of Russia.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos was speaking in St Petersburg, Russia, on June 7 in response to questions from correspondents.

He added that Rolls-Royce sold nearly 3.6 million cars last year, including 100 in Russia, which accounted for 4 percent of the company’s total revenues.

He noted that this year, the company also expects to see significant growth in revenues but it has not unveiled detailed figures.

Vietnam is emerging as a destination for foreign automobile manufacturers. British car brand Bentley has planned to set up a sale agent in this Southeast Asian country thanks to its growing number of luxury cars.

HCM City will host the 9th Vietnam Motorshow this October, expecting to attract 14 respected auto brands.
