The dispute over the territory between Vietnam and China turned into a fine for Volkswagen

In Vietnam, the local government will fine a distributor of a German company and an importer for demonstrating a Touareg crossover with a “wrong” navigation application. The program showed inconsistent territories.

The navigation application, which debuted on the Volkswagen Touareg crossover as part of the motor show in Ho Chi Minh City in October, caused dissatisfaction with the Vietnamese authorities. The program aired Chinese territorial claims rejected by Hanoi. As a result, the Volkswagen Group was fined by Vietnam. So, VW Vietnam Auto will have to pay a fine ranging from 20 to 40 million dong, and World Auto was fined a more substantial amount – 40-60 million dong and suspended from work for a rather long period of time – a whole nine months. It is reported by the General Customs Administration of Vietnam.

 A representative of VW Vietnam Auto declined to comment on the statement by the customs administration. Recall that earlier the news portal VnExpress quoted the distributor general director, who took the blame for what happened. According to him, the car was shown due to negligence on his part.

Southeast Asian countries have come into conflict with China over marine claims in a region where the Beijing border spans waters that may contain undeveloped hydrocarbons. Their cost reaches a cosmic sum of $ 2.5 trillion.

Recall that earlier our portal told how in the English town of Ripon, the driver trusted the navigator and drowned his van. Ford Transit had to rescue from rescue captivity.
