    Trump says U.S.-South Korea trade deal may be signed at U.N.

    WASHINGTON/SEOUL, Sept 18 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Tuesday a U.S. trade deal with South Korea has been fully renegotiated and may be signed at the United Nations, where leaders have gathered for the 73rd session of the General Assembly. In March, the two countries agreed in principle to revise the deal, which Trump had criticised for increasing U.S. trade deficits with South Korea.

    Hedge fund Elliott calls for fresh revamp at Hyundai Motor Group

    SEOUL/NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. activist hedge fund Elliott Management made fresh proposals to restructure Hyundai Motor Group on Friday, renewing pressure on the South Korean conglomerate months after forcing it to abandon its own plan. Elliott, which owns $1.5 billion worth of shares in three Hyundai group companies, called for a committee to review its proposals with other investors and experts, and said its attempts to discuss a new plan had been met with silence. Hyundai rejected the committee idea and added that it hoped "to share our thoughts on how to improve shareholder value with all of our shareholders in due course".

    Elliott renews calls for Hyundai Motor revamp - source

    Hyundai Motor, South Korea’s second-biggest conglomerate, said in May it would “supplement and improve” a plan to streamline its complex ownership structure, reduce regulatory risk and prepare the group for a switch of management from father to son. This came after opposition from Elliott against Hyundai Motor's original restructuring plan and growing public scrutiny over families controlling large conglomerates following a corruption scandal last year involving the Samsung Group. In its fresh proposal, made in August, Billionaire Paul Singer's fund has asked car-parts maker Hyundai Mobis Co. to sell its lucrative after-sale service business to affiliate Hyundai Motor Co. , and then merge what is left of Mobis with logistics affiliate Hyundai Glovis Co , backed by Hyundai's family members.

    Exclusive: Hyundai to ship China-made cars to Southeast Asia amid erratic sales recovery

    SEOUL/BEIJING (Reuters) - Hyundai Motor Co plans to ship China-made cars to Southeast Asia, its China joint venture and two people familiar with the matter told Reuters, as a plunge in Chinese sales has left much of its massive local manufacturing capacity idled. Hyundai once ranked third by China sales alongside affiliate Kia Motors Corp. But just as it opened its fifth factory in the country last year, a diplomatic dispute saw Chinese consumers turn against South Korean goods, damaging Hyundai's sales and brand image. Diplomatic ties have since normalised but Hyundai's recovery has been erratic.

    Empty shipyard and suicides as 'Hyundai Town' grapples with grim future

    When Lee Dong-hee came to Ulsan to work for Hyundai Heavy Industries five years ago, shipyards in the city known as Hyundai Town operated day and night and workers could make triple South Korea's annual average salary. To support their family, Lee's wife took a minimum wage job at a Hyundai Motor supplier. The Lee family's fortunes mirror the decline of Ulsan, which is now reeling from Chinese competition, rising labour costs and its over-reliance on Hyundai - one of the giant, family-run conglomerates or chaebol that dominate South Korea.

    South Korea's Hyundai Motor replaces China head amid weak recovery

    South Korea's Hyundai Motor Co on Wednesday said it has replaced the head of its operation in China after less than one year, to accelerate recovery in its biggest market. The automaker is recovering only slowly from the impact of a diplomatic row between the Seoul and Beijing governments, while a dearth of sport utility vehicles hit its sales hard last year. Hyundai named Yoon Mong-hyun, head of its Turkey operations, as president of its Chinese joint venture with BAIC Motor Corp Ltd (1958.HK).

    Brakes seen on Russian car market recovery after VAT hike

    The Russian government's plan to increase value added tax to compensate for President Vladimir Putin's ambitious new economic goals is set to hit car sales which have only just started to recover from four years of stagnation, sellers say. On Tuesday, lawmakers backed a proposal to raise VAT by 2 percentage points to 20 percent from next year, aiming to raise an additional 600 billion roubles (7.18 billion pounds) per year to pay for new roads and other projects ordered by Putin. The increase in VAT will lead to higher car prices, hitting demand and sales, car makers and dealers say, with hopes for recovery in the industry waning.

    South Korea's Hyundai says U.S. car tariffs would harm security ties over North Korea

    Hyundai Motor cautioned the U.S. administration that imposing up to 25 percent tariffs on imported vehicles from South Korea would hurt a security alliance between the two countries over North Korea's nuclear ambitions. The tariffs would hike production costs at Hyundai's U.S. factory by about 10 percent and "jeopardise" its U.S. investment plan, the top South Korean automaker said, echoing sentiments of other global carmakers such as BMW (BMWG.DE).

    Trump says auto tariff probe will be completed in 3-4 weeks

    President Donald Trump said on Friday his administration's investigation into whether to increase tariffs on cars from the European Union and other trading partners would be completed in three to four weeks. Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One as he travelled from Washington to New Jersey, Trump also said the United States has been treated very badly by the World Trade Organization but he is not considering withdrawing from it at this point. Trump ordered the "Section 232" national security probe into autos on May 23, and his unusually fast timeline calls for it to be possibly completed in just over two months.

    South Korea trade group wants exemption from U.S. auto tariffs for Hyundai and Kia

    A South Korean trade group on Thursday reportedly asked for an exemption from a tariff on auto imports to the U.S., citing a security alliance and a bilateral trade agreement it says was formed in March. U.S. President Trump has threatened to impose tariffs on auto imports and foreign-made car parts, including from Europe and elsewhere, citing what he sees as unfair trade pacts and as the Commerce Department investigates what the administration sees as national security risks posed by some imports. “We are confident that Korea is not a source of threats that may impair U.S. national security, but rather a market of great export potential that meets the interests of the American auto industry,” Korea International Trade Association (KITA) said in comments it filed with the U.S. Department of Commerce, Reuters reported from its Seoul bureau.

    Moody's: US auto tariffs would be largely credit negative for global auto industry

    A 25% tariff being considered on vehicles and auto parts imported to the US would be broadly credit negative for the global auto industry, Moody's Investors Service says in a new report. "Tariffs on imported vehicles and parts would be negative for nearly every group in the industry -- automakers, parts suppliers, car dealers and even transportation companies -- as it rippled across the globalized supply chain, which we forecast will produce about 96.7 million light vehicles this year," says Bruce Clark, Moody's Senior Vice President. US automakers Ford and GM are vulnerable to import tariffs, as both import a significant number of vehicles into the US.

    Kia recalls 507,000 vehicles in U.S. for air bag issues

    Kia Motors Corp said on Friday it was recalling more than 507,000 vehicles in the United States because an electronic glitch may prevent air bags from deploying in a crash. The recall follows an announcement in March by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it was investigating why some air bags had failed to deploy in Kia vehicles and its affiliate Hyundai Motor Corp after crashes in which four people were killed and another six were injured. NHTSA said in March that it was aware of six serious crashes in which air bags failed to deploy in frontal crashes, including four in 2011 model Hyundai Sonatas and two in 2012 and 2013 Kia Forte vehicles.
