For Immediate Release:
Ford would like you to know that the Focus is the best-selling compact car in the world, and it's not difficult to see why it's popular. The Focus always has been stylish, and adding in its European-style tight handling and excellent interior materials means that there's a definite appeal to the compact sedan and hatchback.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) can serve as a foundation of stability - fostering security and economic growth throughout the Pacific Rim region. That is why it is critical that the 12 countries negotiating TPP focus on crafting a modern and relevant trade agreement.

America's car industry has plenty to thank President Barack Obama for, but it's still unhappy with a flagship trade deal that the White House is negotiating.
The carmakers want the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free trade agreement with 11 Pacific nations, to include provisions to stem what they claim is the deliberate weakening of the yen by the Japanese government, something they argue hands an unfair advantage to Japan's car manufacturers, writes the FT's Aaron Stanley.
