Ford Motor Co. announced on Friday its plans to invest in Mexico the amount of $2.5 billion dollars in the country´s growing automotive sector.

Ford is Mexico’s fourth-largest auto exporter, according to official industry figures, selling 108,417 units abroad during the first quarter. The majority headed to the United States. The company also has a factory in the northern state of Sonora, where it produces the Fusion subcompact and the high-end Lincoln MKZ. In recent years foreign automakers have expander their presence in Mexico, due to its cheap labor force, and the proximity to the Unites States.
