GAZ Group and Volkswagen plan to decide on cooperation in car production within a month, the Russian company’s chief executive officer Bo Anderson has told a television station.

He was talking to Russia Today television and his comments follow those by VW chairman Martin Winterkorn who said last month that the company planned to assemble vehicles at GAZ Group facilities.

VW Russia chief Dietmar Korzekwa also said in September that the companies were to decide on cooperation by the end of this year.
