Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Chinese state-owned automaker Chery Auto approved the resolution on the transfer of the company's shareholding on May 29, which was unanimously passed by the employees' representatives conference.
According to the resolution, Chery Auto intends to introduce new investors in the form of the cash injection of no less than RMB 2 billion. The investors could become the automaker's shareholders through adding investment and enlarging share capital.
