Chinese COVID-19 lockdown affecting Japanese companies

Lockdowns and other restrictions to contain COVID-19 outbreaks in many parts of China are affecting Japanese manufacturers operating in the country.

According to a Japan External Trade Organization office in Chengdu, a inland city where an effective lockdown began in the city center Nov. 11, some Japanese companies are having workers sleep in their factories to continue production.

Others have had to halt their manufacturing operations in Chongqing. Honda plans to suspend its production until Friday, while Yamaha stopped its plant operations for more than a week in mid-November.
