“With the economic recovery being slower than anticipated and a high interest rate & inflation environment, customers continue to defer their discretionary spends,” said Anurag Mehrotra, executive director Marketing, Sales and Service at Ford India. “However, Ford’s faith in India’s long-term growth prospects remains intact. We are continuing to invest in India’s future growth potential. In March, we took our growth commitment in India to a new peak with the inauguration of US $1-billion integrated manufacturing facility at Sanand, Gujarat.”
