SEOUL, March 26 (Reuters) - Hyundai Motor group chairman Chung Mong-koo plans to sign a preliminary deal on Thursday to build the automaker’s fourth auto manufacturing plant in China, the company said.

The source, who has a direct knowledge of the matter, also said the plant would have an annual production capacity of 300,000 vehicles. ($1 = 1079.3500 Korean won) (Reporting by Choonsik Yoo; Editing by Paul Tait and Stephen Coates)
