Honda to resume auto production in China plants on February 21
Honda Motor Co. said on Friday that it is planning to resume operations in its auto-manufacturing plant in Wuhan, China on February 21. The planned operations schedule was delayed a week ago.
Honda, currently Japan’s third-largest manufacturer of automobiles and auto parts, said that factory output would resume after February 24.
Japan’s Nikkei newspaper reported last week that the Japanese vehicle giant had suspended its factory operations in Wuhan until the end of February amid growing concerns of the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Honda is amongst a large number of other industries and companies struggling to keep production running in China as cases of the virus continue to rise.
