CAAM vice chairman died by suicide, reports say
Automotive News China | 2018/2/23

Wu Shaoming, vice chairman and secretary general of the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, killed himself on Feb. 13, according to Chinese media. 

Wu, 55, jumped to his death at his home in a Beijing apartment building, reported several Chinese media outlets, including The Paper, a Shanghai news website. 

CAAM Executive Vice Chairman Dong Yang, in his personal blog, confirmed Wu¡¯s ¡°sudden death¡± and said Wu died mainly for health reasons. 

Wu joined CAAM in 2016. Before that, he was vice president of China FAW Group Corp.  

Wu joined FAW in 1987 as an engineer after graduation from college and spent most of his automotive career at the major state-owned automaker.

CAAM, headquartered in Beijing, has close ties with the central Chinese government. It often advises government bodies on policymaking for the domestic auto industry.
