Due to the recent military insurgence in Bangkok, Thailand, Nissan Motor Company has announced that it has halted operations at its Thailand facility the day after the military seized power over the Thai government. The company said that the move was necessary to ensure the safety of its 33 Japanese employed by Nissan and its affiliates. A spokeswoman for Nissan commented that the decision to reopen its Factory on Thursday would be released soon and that strong recommendations to stay indoors had been heeded by the company.
In a similar move, Honda, cancelled its first shift at its Bangkok plant but would resume shifts later that same day. Operations at its motorcycle factory would continue as normal.
