Mexico courting Japanese parts suppliers

TOKYO -- Mexico is trying to lure Japanese autoparts makers. Although the country makes more cars than any other Latin American country, its automakers share a structural weakness -- underdeveloped supporting industries.

Workers attend to a car inside Nissan Motor's plant in the Mexican state of Aguascalientes.

     Mexico lacks the layers of reliable domestic suppliers needed to ensure the car industry's steady, long-term expansion. Concerns about this shaky foundation have been apparent in recent visits to Japan by the governors of some Mexican states.
