Renault-owned Dacia says it will boost daily output by 12% and hire new staff from mid-June as a result of higher export orders.

Incentive programmes in a number of EU states have helped to revive demand for the firm's Logan cars.

Dacia said in a statement that its average daily production will rise to 1,340 cars from 1,200 from June 15, bringing it closer to last year's peak of 1,360 vehicles.

The firm also said it will hire roughly 500 people and extend the work contracts for another 400.
