Government invests $97.5M to help Ford production
BUCHAREST — The Romanian government says it will invest $97.5 million of state aid in Ford Motor Co. to help production at its compact van factory in southern Romania.
Government spokesman Dan Suciu says Tuesday the money is earmarked for the production of automobiles and automobile engines.
Ford launched the production of its new compact van at a factory in Craiova, southern Romania in 2009.
Mr. Suciu said it will produce some 810,000 automobiles and 1.5 million engines from 2013 to 2017.
In 2007, Ford bought a 72.4 percent stake in the state-owned Automobile Craiova, paying $88 million and vowing to invest $1 billion to upgrade and expand car production.
Defense minister: Canceling F-35 purchases still a possibility
TORONTO — Canada’s associate defense minister says his government could back out of a multibillion-dollar plan to buy F-35 stealth fighters from the United States.
Julian Fantino said Tuesday that Canada is considering “if and when” to sign a contract for the Lockheed Martin-manufactured jet.
Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been a staunch supporter of the program, but Mr. Fantino’s remarks represent a step back. Canada has said it would buy 65 jets.
