The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editors/analysts Brendan Byrnes and Isaac Pino discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and Isaac talk about Ford's emerging-market strategy. The company doesn't have nearly the presence in China that fellow Detroit automaker General Motors does, but the company is working to change that. As Toyota and Honda look to regain U.S. market share in 2012, emerging markets will be critical for Ford and its growth going forward. What are some other countries that Ford is concentrating on?
