Where does Mitsubishi stand at the moment, now that your are fully independent?
We do have cooperation on a project basis with Nissan, PSA/Peugeot-Citroen, Chrysler and Daimler. But are still open for any other proposal on a project basis.
Will a tie-up between Fiat and Chrysler be harmful for your current setup with Chrysler?
I dont think that this new alliance between Chrysler and Fiat will have a direct impact on us, nor will it damage us.
Do you think that Mitsubishi Motors needs a financial alliance or do you believe that you just need industrial partnerships to survive?
We are part of the Mitsubishi group, which consists of 30 companies, so we can always enjoy some kind of support. We had our experience with DaimlerChrysler, with the purpose to become bigger. But that was not the right way to survive, as you need two parties with the same philosophy.
