Jan 31, 2010
BEIJING – TOTAL Lubricants, a division of TOTAL S.A., the world’s fifth-largest integrated oil and gas “Supermajor,” will be the Gold Sponsor at CBU/CAR’s inaugural 2010 Global Automotive Symposium (GAS 2010) to be held in April in Beijing.
GAS 2010, with a theme of China and World Automobile Market in the Next Decade: Innovation, Green Vehicles and Global Competition, will be held on April 22-23 at the Westin Beijing Chaoyang right before Auto China 2010 (April 23-May 2), the year’s largest auto show in China.
TOTAL Lubricants has been in China for more than 20 years. It has shown a 30% volume increase per year since 2005 on a market growing at only 5% a year. As expressed through the slogan “The Road Without Limit!,” TOTAL Lubricants China is committed to being the best choice for Chinese customers under the most demanding driving conditions, while meeting the highest needs of all equipment.
TOTAL Lubricants China has been supporting local racing teams in the China Circuit Championship for the past several years: the team sponsored by TOTAL Lubricants China was the winner at the CCC 2005 and 3rd at the CCC 2006. In 2008, Total Lubricants China was again part of the CCC with both Peugeot and Citroen teams.
TOTAL Lubricants China is continuing with its innovative approach (through new products, tools, services, newsletter and website, advertising, social projects, etc.) as well as continuous improvements in all fields.
Preparations for GAS 2010 are now under full-swing. CBU/CAR is in the process of inviting key automotive executives from leading foreign and Chinese automakers and suppliers, including global automotive CEOs, to become distinguished speakers.

GAS 2010 was conceived based on the fact that 2010 will be a milestone for China’s automobile industry. It will be the beginning of the second decade of the new century and follows upon 2009, a year in which China became the world’s largest manufacturing country of new light vehicles. 2010 will also usher in a true consumer rather than institutional automobile market in China as well as a new decade of intensified global competition and unprecedented domestic consolidation.
