War in Ukraine: automakers forced to stop

The economic impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was not so long. In the automotive sector, some brands have begun to announce temporary suspensions due to supply shortages. Therefore, the production of Renault, Ford, Volkswagen and even Stellantis will be slowed down. A new problem that automakers would have been doing well had already been penalized for over a year due to a shortage of semiconductors.

Therefore, Volkswagen will suspend production for several days next week in Zwickau and Dresden (Germany) due to a shortage of supply from Ukrainian suppliers. The consequences of the war will inevitably be serious for the group, which sells nearly 100,000 cars each year in Russia. As part of that, the Renault Group has revealed that strengthening border control is causing supply problems. Russia accounts for 5-10% of the total sales of French manufacturers.

Trade and Russian property touched by Geneva

The welcome resumption of European Union sanctions by the Swiss Federation could have two minor implications for Geneva: freezing certain oligarch assets and slowing trade … generally Russia’s direct in Switzerland Employment is only 42,000 … the fact remains The fact remains. From hotels to watchmaking, certain sectors, including the luxury sector, have also lost customers, of which wealthy Swiss are the main consumers.

Vaucluse: Laëtitia Vinuesa turns Avignon’s MIN into the future

This is the first time for Avignon’s MIN. Since its founding in 1963, the economic center of Marseille Route has always been controlled by its directors.
