The Government asks to avoid guesswork about Nissan because nothing has been decided yet

The Vice President of the Govern and Minister for the Economy, Pere Aragonès, has asked to “avoid conjecture” about the closure of the Nissan plant in the Barcelona Free Trade Zone, because “until May 28, nothing is decided on the matter and it is being talking to the company and the unions.

In a statement to Radio 4, Vice President Aragonès referred to the news published yesterday by the Japanese newspaper Nikkei, according to which Nissan will close its Barcelona plant as part of measures to reduce costs in the face of the severe crisis in the sector.

Aragonès has called for calm, “because at the moment they are only conjectures” and “there is no decision taken”, with which the Generalitat “is doing everything possible to maintain production” and is in contact with both the company as with Nissan union organizations.

He has acknowledged, however, that “the situation is complicated” and more so when the Nissan plant in Barcelona “is one of the most important in the Catalan automobile sector”, but the Generalitat, he said, “will try to maintain its continuity”.
