The Alliance announced today that it will study increased convergence in Research & Development, Manufacturing & Logistics, Purchasing, and Human Resources to be jointly managed by Renault and Nissan.

"Renault and Nissan's partnership is fundamentally based on mutual respect and an attitude where all 'win-win' projects move forward on the fast track," said Renault-Nissan Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn.

Four Areas of Focus

Four operations are launching convergence projects, including:

- Purchasing: Renault and Nissan have had a significantly combined
  purchasing organization for more than a decade. The additional convergence projects in
  R&D and Manufacturing will be designed to drive more synergies and deliver more
  economies of scale for the companies and their suppliers globally - including France,
  Japan and key growth markets. Christian Vandenhende, Managing Director of
  Renault-Nissan Purchasing Organization, will be the Purchasing convergence project
- R&D: Renault and Nissan will study how to allocate research on
  next-generation technologies to spread resources further. The R&D study will also
  focus on the acceleration of common platforms, define and deploy a common powertrain
  strategy, and optimize test facilities globally. Tsuyoshi Yamaguchi, Director of
  Common Platforms and Parts for the Renault-Nissan Alliance, will be the R&D
  convergence project leader.
- Manufacturing & Logistics: Projects will focus on how to improve plant
  performance through more rigorous benchmarking. The teams will also review how to
  optimize capital expenditures through standardization, better capacity utilization and
  logistics efficiency. Shouhei Kimura, Corporate Vice President for Vehicle Production
  Engineering at Nissan, will be the Manufacturing & Logistics convergence project
- Human Resources: Renault and Nissan teams will study the development of
  common HR processes throughout the Alliance. The companies will launch a project to
  create a unified "talent management" policy from the home countries and across global
  operations. Marie-Francoise Damesin, Executive Vice President for Human Resources at
  Renault, will be the HR convergence project leader.
