The Ford Motor Company is ready to consider the offers on the organization of assembly manufacture in Belarus. "If there is any offer profitable both to Belarus and Ford Company, we will consider such project in any case", — the Ford Motor Company regional manager in Eastern Europe Zoltan Papp emphasized.

«We will be very glad, if in such a way we can achieve big successes not only in Belarus, but also in the whole region», the representative of the company has noted.

The deputy director on sale of the Ford general importer in Belarus Andrej Gavrilov thinks, that to start manufacture there should be a corresponding outlet, since nobody opens manufacture nowadays without it. «Such outlet will appear with the introduction of Belarus into the Customs union», the deputy director is assured.

«The markets of all Europe have strongly suffered for two last years. As the result, today it is difficult to find an expert who would predict that the situation will change for the better in 2010. In the circumstances the Ford Motor Company, as well as the others manufacturers, has free capacities. And tendencies are that more and more companies aspire to have the regional assembly base», the representative of general importer Ford in Belarus declared.
