Emails Show That Japan Intervened To Defend Nissan's Independence From Ghosn

Description

According to a report by Automotive News, last year, as then-Chairman Carlos Ghosn pushed to strengthen ties between Renault and Nissan, executives at the Japanese company were working behind the scenes to defend Nissan's independence. The efforts made by the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry reportedly show that internal concern was mounting months before Ghosn's arrest on allegations of financial wrongdoing. A series of emails seen by Bloomberg reportedly show Nissan's leadership was attempting to protect the company's interests in a relationship the Japanese already viewed as one-sided.
