Online Politics – After leaving Honda, the British fears "Nisan" and "Toyota"


For the first time in its 71 years of existence, Japan "Honda" has decided to close its own car production at this time, in Swindon, in the United Kingdom. The announcement of the "Hondin" supply station in the Welsh state in early 2021 means that at least 7,000 employees (half of the plant, the rest among local suppliers of parts and equipment) face the future anxiety At the same time, Honda "gudbaj" in Swindon is at the same time as the first case of closing a car factory in the UK since 2007. Twenty years ago before raising the worst global financial crisis since Second World War, French "Pejo" raised hands from the assembly plant in Coventry. Announcing the Swindon Requirement, Honda's executive director Takahiro Hachigo said that the bigger wanted to focus more on investments in the development of electric vehicles, especially closer to home in Asia. In the explanation, there was nothing about the significant reduction in the production of the "sivik" model (which is being done in Wales), with 250,000 vehicles, before the 2008 financial crisis, to 161,000 of vehicles last year.

At the same time, Haciago did not explain why Honda decided, now forty days before leaving Britain without defining it in the UK, publishing his departure. In the meantime, the British public determines whether the rapid negotiations between London and Brussels over the barges have influenced the timing of the "Honda" announcement. Along with the "Ford" American, Detroit's headquarters were more than clear: if Isle of Wight is chaotic (without a formal arrangement with Brussels), a large car in the West could close two of its facilities in the UK, reports in London "Financial Times".

At the same time, the Turtles of the streets, who, after the Swindon case, could recall "Toyota" and "Nisana", which is now that Margaret Thatcher has also driven cars on the other side of the Lemans. Meanwhile, "Jaguar Lend Rover" released the news that she could release around 4,500 employees soon, mainly in the UK.

The United Kingdom's first Japanese auto maker takes place in a particularly incredible moment for manufacturers of gasoline and diesel vehicles in the West. Indeed, European makers and cars (and especially German), but also in America, are waiting for a 45th US President's decision on introducing new customs duties (perhaps even 25%) on cars, parts , components, etc. have been imported. At the same time, while auto-business on both sides of the Atlantic assesses a large loss of profit and potential mass measures – due to Washington's possible new practices – auto-manufacturers in the West face the same time with the dramatic decline in selling their vehicles in China, the largest car market in the world.

Like in January, US and European vehicle makers recorded 18 per cent less sales of their vehicles in China or last year at the same time, the Blumberg agency said yesterday. Annual car sales in China – due to a break in economic growth and a number of uncertainties in the economy of the second economy and the world – last year fell for the first time for 20 years, the Association of Chinese Car Manufacturers (CAAM) announced. Today's automotive industry in West Wales reported business results in the Asian tiger market: Ford sales down there in 2018 for a third, General Motors dropped by 10 per cent, while

"Volkswagen" said a decrease of three percent.

"We expect to sell cars even more clearly," said Hu Haidong, general assistant secretary of CAAM.

In order to prevent the steep decline in demand and the sales of western car models in China, US and European producers are still far from a joint performance strategy. So, for example, the "Ford" American announces that it will offer 20 new models this year to the Chinese market this year. Meanwhile, the two strongest economies in Europe: Germany and France nowadays realize that their world-wide companies for profits deal with competition that is supported by the mainly state mechanism.

After a recent "veto" by the European Commission (6th February) on the attempt of German "Simens" and French "Alstom" to combine jobs, in Paris and Berlin he presented a joint proposal on the review of the EU Competitiveness Policy this week i Brussels. The German Chancellor Angela Merkel has announced that the European business competitiveness topic in the global arena will be put on the EU leaders' summit agenda in March.
