India’s TATA could set up operations for Jaguar in Romania
According to reports in Indian media, giant conglomerate TATA which owns Jaguar / Land Rover is reported to be in advanced discussions with Romanian authorities in the Cluj district, North Eastern part of Romania to set up an entire operation in the village of Jucu, outside the city of Cluj Napoca. Jucu has become known for the factory Nokia opened 2 years ago (relocation from Germany) but closed early 2012. The move would come as strategic as Romania is an EU member with one of the lowest average salaries and with a highly skilled technical human resources. Renault has been successfully producing in Romania the Dacia brand and Ford produces its Fiesta model. It could as well be an assembly of parts from other countries, but the exemption of tax when exporting to other EU countries provides the highest motivation for Tata for starting such an operation.
