“I am very satisfied with the Group’s continued strong performance”, said Prof. Dr. Jochem Heizmann, board member of the Volkswagen AG and head of the China operations in Beijing. “It emphasizes the central position of the Chinese market in our 2018 strategy to become the most successful carmaker worldwide – economically and ecologically.”
