This picture taken on April 19, 2014 shows a Mazda car being installed in an exhibition hall ahead of the Beijing International Automotive ExhibitionLeading automakers gathered in Beijing Sunday for China's biggest car show, expressing confidence in the world's largest car market even though lacklustre economic growth and environmental restrictions have generated uncertainty. Spectators and journalists crowded around displays at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, which features more than 1,100 vehicles and opens to the public on Monday, while female models drew the attention of photographers. General Motors, Toyota, Volkswagen and Hyundai are among the global manufacturers on the list of attendees, along with SAIC and Dongfeng, China's number one and two domestic automakers. "This is obviously an incredibly important market for General Motors," its president Dan Ammann told reporters, saying China since 2010 had been the US automaker's largest market which now accounted for a third of total volume.
