Reuters, 3/26/12

Japanese carmaker Nissan Motor Co expects exports from its Mexico operations to rise 2.2 pct to 420,000 units in 2012, the company’s chief in Mexico said on Monday.

Nissan, Japan’s second-largest auto maker, said in January that it would build a new, $2 billion plant in Mexico to boost sales in the Americas.
