Ford Motor Co. (F) may be fined about 14 million euros ($19 million) by the Romanian authorities for failing to meet a car-production pledge at its southern Craiova- based factory, after receiving state-aid from the government, Ziarul Financiar reported, citing Finance Minister officials.
Ford was supposed to manufacture about 250,000 cars at its Romanian factory this year, Ziarul Financiar said, citing a contract between the Romanian government and the Dearborn, Michigan-based company. It has so far produced about 7,600 cars, according to the newspaper.
