Ford to Source $1 Billion in Part from China in 2004

Part of ongoing efforts to buy such items from "low cost" countries in Asia and elsewhere

Published: 03-Dec-2003

Ford plans to source about $1bn in automotive components from China next year - later than originally planned -  as part of ongoing efforts to buy such items from "low cost" countries in Asia and elsewhere.

Ford said last year that it aimed to have sourced $1bn in parts from such countries, including China, by the end of this year.

However Bill Ford, chairman and chief executive, told a media briefing that the company would "hit that amount" in China next year.
