New chief in FAW.

December 29 Chinese authorities have appointed a new general manager named Xu Jiangong for First Automobile Works, the company announced on Wednesday.

The new leader, 54, had worked many years for FAW and served as deputy general before entering politics in 2003. He was Communist party boss for the city of Jilin before chosen as general manager for FAW.

Xus predecessor, Zhu Yanfeng, has assumed the office of lieutenant governor of northeast China's Jilin Province after 24 years working for FAW.

Zhu became general manager of FAW in 1999. During his tenure, FAW acquired Tianjin Xiali Auto Company and set up several joint ventures with global auto giants such as VW, Toyota and Mazda.
