Car-maker Ford may quit local production by 2016, according to a report in The Australian Financial Review.
Stephen Longley, partner with PPB Advisory, told the paper Ford was likely to exit as a local manufacturer.
“It’s the elephant in the room, it’s just not talked about openly,” he said.
The speculation follows Ford’s recent announcement it would cut 440 jobs.
