The foundations are a great product, a consistent focus on understanding and meeting the needs of local consumers, fantastic partnerships, and a dedication to bringing the latest industry technology to China," said Akerson. This approach, he said, has enabled General Motors to remain the sales leader among global automakers in China for six consecutive years. In 2010, the US automaker and its joint ventures with FAW Group and SAIC Motors sold a record 2.35 million vehicles in the domestic market, which contributed almost 30 percent of the company's total sales around the world.
