Where Ford Is Investing Heavily for Growth

In today's video, industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes analyzes Ford's strategy of investing heavily in its Asia-Pacific-Africa region for future growth. Ford plans to open nine new plants in the region that will make seven different vehicles, bringing total capacity in the region to almost 3 million vehicles. Ford hopes to get one-third of its global sales from the region by mid-decade, an ambitious strategy that Ford needs to be successful in order to achieve its growth goals. Check out the video below for more on Ford's huge investment, and other factors that will drive Ford in the future.
