By the end of May, the share will rise to 80%, estimates Adrian Sandu, general secretary of the Association of Automobile Producers in Romania (ACAROM), quoted by Ziarul Financiar.

Part of the employees will return to work immediately after Easter to resume the production of car parts, so that the production of automobiles can start as well from May 4.

Activity in the local auto industry has been suspended in the last month due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, some of the biggest companies in the automotive sector have already announced they would resume work.

Car producer Dacia, the biggest company in Romania by turnover, will restart part of its operations on April 21.
