Chinese investment revitalises US auto town

Auto glass maker pours in $280 million to reopen shuttered factory and create 800 US jobs.

    Towns in the American Midwest, hit hard by years of economic decline, are getting a much-needed boost from China.

    Chinese companies are now spending big money as they send manufacturing offshore.

    In Dayton, Ohio, Chinese auto glass maker Fuyao is reopening a shuttered automobile factory with a $280 million investment and 800 jobs.
