Jan 23 2014 - World Economic Forum

Well Europe is coming back after five years of decline where the European market slid more than 25 percent. For the first time we have a positive forecast for Europe for 2014. It is not very big, a 1.0 percent increase after a 25 percent decline, but you know it is good to see an inflection in the European market. I think Europe will be on a slow growth mode for the car industry thanks to resuming consumer confidence. So I am cautiously optimistic about the prospect of the European market but nothing is going to be quick nothing is going to be significant for two or three years to come.feedback

China is maintaining a much higher growth of the BRICs, much higher because obviously it is the highest growth rate and I think in terms of investments in infrastructure, investments in education – which are the underlying forces of economic growth – they are doing a superb job.

Recovery in the United States where the car market continued to recover to reach the level before 2013 that is how I would qualify it.feedback

Sep 18 2013 - Driverless cars

The autonomous car is based on technical modules. These modules are being prepared. In fact some of these modules you're going to see in the Infiniti cars, or the Nissan cars, or the Renault cars coming before 2020. But assembling all these modules to make the autonomous car? I think 2020 is a very reasonable date, and by the way I don't think ours will be the only one coming in 2020.feedback

Mar 05 2013

So number one is: go where the growth is taking place and contribute to this growth. Number two is that you have to be in a resistance mode in Europe.feedback
