FRANKFURT, June 30 (Reuters) - Germany's BMW on Monday said it will make an announcement in Mexico on July 3, although the German premium auto manufacturer stopped short of confirming it will be about a widely expected decision to build a car factory.

"A decision will be made public," a spokesman for the Munich-based auto maker said.

Last week, BMW Chief Executive Norbert Reithofer said the Munich-based auto maker is still deliberating on where to locate a new factory and will reach a decision before the summer break.
