Monday evening, the BMW Group AG announced that it inked an agreement with their Chinese partner, Brilliance Auto (or better known as Brilliance China Automotive Holdings Ltd) that will bring €100 Million ($129 Million) to the world's biggest market.
The deal was signed in the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Chinese Premier Li Kequiang during the latter's official three-day visit in Germany, according to a BMW spokesperson for Kuwait News Agency.

This move is hardly a surprise as the Chinese market is continuously growing and will become the BMW's primary target in the years to come. The funds will be used for a new manufacturing factory along with a center for economic research in China.

Since 2003, when the BMW-Brilliance joint venture started, the Bavarian company registered a big climb in sales and was allowed to run BMW factories in China, drastically reducing the production costs.
