MACKINAC CONFERENCE
(2007-05-31)
(wgvu) - MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) - Bill Ford says a sluggish reaction
to foreign competition and rising demand for environmentally
friendly vehicles has cost the domestic auto industry dearly.
The Ford Chairman today told 17-hundred business, political and
civic leaders that he envisioned the industry's current realities
four years ago. Ford spoke today at the Detroit Regional Chamber's
annual Mackinac Policy Conference.
He says because domestic automakers didn't move fast enough,
many of his prophecies are now coming true.
Ford says reforming health care was crucial for automakers and
other manufacturers. He also says Michigan has an economic
opportunity to develop solutions to climate change.
