Positive negotiations are likely to help a contract be sealed by the end of 2015 and the UAZ assembling begin in Vietnam next year, Sollers Director General Vadim Shvetov said on October 14, adding that Vietnam is an attractive market for Sollers.
The next negotiation round is scheduled to take place on December 25. The project timeline and investment have not been determined yet.
