BUENOS AIRES (MarketWatch) -- Volkswagen ...

BUENOS AIRES (MarketWatch) -- Volkswagen AG (VOW.XE) Management Board Member Francisco Sanz said Tuesday that the German auto maker aims to regain leadership in the Chinese automotive sales market by 2008 after losing its No. 1 spot to General Motors Corp. (GM) earlier this year. Volkswagen, which had been the longtime leader in China until 2006, has seen its share of the global passenger car market slide in recent years due to a surge by big international competitors based in Asia. In China, Volkswagen sales rose in the first half of 2006, but the German auto maker's growth rate of about 30% during the period was outpaced by a nearly 50% increase at GM. Sanz, speaking to Dow Jones Newswires on the sidelines of the International Iron and Steel Institute annual meeting, said the company has plans to wrestle sales leadership away from GM by 2008. The China leadership goal is part of an Olympic restructuring program that has been designed to reinvigorate its business in one of the world's most promising and challenging markets. Sanz leads Volkswagen's procurement efforts and is part of the company's six-member management board. "Clearly we still want to be No. 1," he said, regarding the company's desire to once again lead in China.

...
Speaking of the company's plans in South America, Sanz said Volkswagen doesn't plan to shift production from Brazil to Argentina. The German auto maker is in the process of reducing its production in Brazil aimed for the export market and trimming 6,000 jobs by 2008 in an effort to increase profitability, which is being depressed by the Brazilian currency appreciation against the U.S dollar. However, he didn't rule out a possible production increase at Volkswagen's Argentine plant. "We just invested in the local production of a new sedan (in Argentina)," he said. Argentina is enjoying a fourth year in a row of strong economic recovery and the peso's devaluation against the U.S. dollar is boosting the auto sector's production. Other auto makers have been launching or are preparing more investment in Argentina.
