Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn has met with prime minister Theresa May to discuss Nissan's continuing investment in its Sunderland plant.
Ghosn recently said the company’s future investment depends on the negotiations surrounding Brexit. Following today's meeting, which he described as "positive and productive", Ghosn said the government "will continue to ensure the UK remains a competitive place to do business".
"I welcome their [the cabinet's] commitment to the development of an industrial strategy for Britain."
May said she was "pleased to have met with Mr Ghosn today to discuss our shared belief that Britain remains an outward-looking, world-leading nation in which to do business. We will continue to work with Nissan as we develop the environment for competitiveness of the automotive industry here in the UK to ensure its success."
Neither Ghosn nor Nissan have made any official announcement about the company's future investment since the meeting, but the discussion brings Nissan one step closer to making a decision on whether to continue its UK production investment as planned.
