The money will be invested in assembly plants in Betim and SeteLagoas, two cities in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais, Fiat said in an announcement, adding that the investment is expected to create 5,500 job opportunities. The announcement was made following a meeting between Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne and Minas Gerais State Governor Aecio Neves.

According to Neves, the investment will turn the Betim plant into Fiat’s largest production base in the world. (people.com.cn)
