The move would mark a shift away from the aggressive expansion campaign promoted by ousted former Chairman Carlos Ghosn, the Nikkei said. "The details reported in this story are completely incorrect, and Nissan has voiced its strong objection to the Nikkei," the Japanese automaker said in a statement posted on its website.

    Japan April manufacturing contraction slows but export slump deepens - Flash PMI

    Japanese manufacturing activity contracted at a slightly slower pace in April thanks to a pick up in hiring, but new export orders fell at the fastest pace in almost three years in a sign slow global demand remains a major pressure point for the economy. The Markit/Nikkei Japan Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) rose to a seasonally adjusted 49.5 in April from a final 49.2 in March but remained below the 50 threshold that separates contraction from expansion for a third month. "Japan's manufacturing sector remained stuck in its rut at the start of Q2, with the factors which have prohibited any growth such as US-Sino relations, growth fears in China and the turn in the global trade cycle, all remaining prominent risks," said Joe Hayes, economist at IHS Markit, which compiles the survey.
