U.S. Trade Representative Lighthizer 'troubled' by Ford's China move

WASHINGTON, June 22 (Reuters) - U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said on Thursday that he was concerned about Ford Motor Co’s announcement earlier this week that it will move some production of its Focus small car to China and import the vehicles to the United States.

“I find that very troubling. I want to look and see what incentives there are. It doesn’t necessarily make sense to me,” Lighthizer said before a panel of lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

“If it happened for reasons that are non-economic reasons, then I think the administration should take action,” he added.
