Nissan Kyushu and Honda Kumamoto Curtail Production

Nissan Motor Co. will cut its car production at its Fukuoka factory by more than 50% in April. Reduced demands for new cars in the US and other international markets amidst the impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced the company to cancel its night shifts between Apr. 2 to Apr. 30. The company reportedly plans no cuts in human resources. Honda Motor Co., Ltd. will stop production at its Kumamoto factory for two days in April. Source: Nikkei 2020-03-28
