Ford plans to add 7,000 jobs in US: CEO

Bangkok: Ford Motor Co plans to add 7,000 jobs in the United States over the next two years, it’s chief executive, Alan Mulally, said on Thursday.

However, speaking to a small group of reporters in Bangkok, Mulally declined comment on progress in negotiations on a new labour contract in the United States with the United Auto Workers. Previous reports have indicated a deal could be reached this week.

Mulally said the second-largest US car maker would not be slowing its expansion in Asia, despite slower economic growth in China and India.
