The North East of England Chamber of Commerce says it would be 'a real concern' if Nissan decides NOT to manufacture its next Qashqai vehicle in Sunderland.
NECC Chief Executive, James Ramsbotham has been speaking to ITV News Tyne Tees after Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn demanded UK Government support post Brexit. His comments have caused fresh concerns over the future of the the Sunderland plant and a question mark over where the new Qashqai model will be built.
I think it would be a real concern because the Qashqai after all was designed here in Britain and has been built totally in Sunderland. It has been a phenomenal success, much more than people outside the industry appreciate and to lose that kind of support would be really really damaging.
The Japanses car manufacture which builds 500,000 cars a year on Wearside wants the UK to pledge compensation for any tax barriers that may be raised as a result of leaving the European Union.
We are determined to make sure that the UK remains the best place in Europe to run and grow a business, whether it’s one operating at home or abroad. "We are not going to provide a running commentary on every twist and turn of these negotiations. You don’t start a negotiation by telling the people you are negotiating with exactly what you plan to do. That approach won’t help us get the best deal for Britain.
Sunderland voted overwhelmingly to leave the EU, with 61% of people voting out in this year's referendum.
