Fiat may relocate Alfa Romeo production outside Italy

Italian carmaker Fiat has threatened to move production of new Alfa Romeo models abroad as Italy's labour rules hamper its ability to compete with BMW for luxury-car buyers, Bloomberg has reported. Fiat has put new investment in Italy on hold as it pushes Prime Minister Enrico Letta's government to adopt reforms that help manufacturers with clearer work rules after Fiat's labour contracts suffered a setback in Italian courts, chief executive Sergio Marchionne said. "The re-launch of Alfa Romeo will continue for sure," Marchionne said. "Italy should decide if they want it to happen here or not as Fiat and Chrysler have several alternatives."
