"This is true on the global side, and in particular a core pillar of our digital strategy in China -- we build strong partnerships with Chinese powerhouses," Goller noted.

On the same day, BMW and Chinese tech giant Tencent announced to enhance cooperation in the digitalization field by integrating Tencent WeScenario and WeChat into BMW's in-car system, starting with WeScenario this year, followed by WeChat.
