General Motors says China unaffected by U.S. recall
BEIJING, March 2
BEIJING, March 2 (Reuters) - General Motors [GM.UL] said on Tuesday it does not expect to see any impact in China from its decision to recall 1.3 million compact cars in North America to address a power steering problem.
"I can tell you in a responsible way there's no impact on the Chinese market," Chen Shi, vice president of GM China, told reporters at an event in Beijing.
He added that GM in China has been in contact with relevant government agencies in relation to the matter, including China's quality watchdog.
Separately, Chen said GM was aiming to increase its China market share, which stood at 13.7 percent last year, in 2010.
General Motors has said it expects to sell more than 2 million units this year, up from 1.83 million vehicles sold in 2009, a record for the U.S. automaker. ($=6.8271 yuan) (Reporting by Michael Wei and Doug Young; Editing by Jacqueline Wong)
