Geely eyes Europe

STOCKHOLM: Chinese carmaker Geely is considering making and selling cars in Western Europe, a Swedish business daily quoted the company’s director as saying on Tuesday. "European production is part of our strategy," Geely Auto's Managing Director Conghui An told Dagens Industri. An was in Gothenburg to discuss the possibility of setting up Geely's European head office near that of Volvo Cars, which it bought from Ford in 2010. Sweden is however not the only country the firm is considering, and no date has been set for when it could begin production in Europe, An said.
