GM Daewoo Auto & Technology president Nick Reilly has strongly protested against South Korean moves on emission standards and tax reductions that he claimed strongly favoured South Korea's dominant Hyundai Automotive Group, the New York Times reported. According to the paper, Reilly said the government had favoured Hyundai Motor and affiliate Kia Motors by setting relatively easy emission standards for diesel engines two years from now before raising the standards beginning in 2006.
