ABSTRACT
Ford Motor Co. said it will halt output at a plant near Sao Paulo, Brazil from June 23 through June 27, 2003 because of soft demand. The decision follows similar moves by competitors such as General Motors. A Ford spokesman says the shutdown at its Sao Bernardo do Campo plant, where the Ka, Fiesta and Courier models are produced, would affect 2,800 workers. Another production halt at the plant is scheduled from July 21 through August 1.
