Mexico -  A state official in western Mexico says more than 3400 jobs at a Ford assembly plant are safe following the company's announcement that it will shift planned production of its Focus to China.

Sonora State Economy Secretary Jorge Vidal says Ford will continue producing the Fusion and Lincoln MKZ at its plant in Hermosillo.

In January, Ford halted construction on a new plant in the central Mexico state of San Luis Potosi meant to build the Focus. That plant was to have employed 2800.
