MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. Renault Russia will start exporting cars to Middle East countries in 2017, Chief Executive Officer of the company Andrei Pankov told reporters on Tuesday
"Renault will start export to the Persian Gulf countries since this year; to six countries," Pankov said.
The top manager did not detail volumes of planned supplies and vehicle models.
It was reported earlier Renault started deliveries of its Logan, Sandero Stepway and Duster models to Vietnam.
