  • Companies. The Catalan government warns Nissan: "You cannot just leave Barcelona"

The President of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, has called for "the unity of administrations, economic and social agents" to avoid "the alleged closure of Nissan", and has pointed out that "we all ask for the same thing: that the plants not be closed Nissan and a direct dialogue with Japan. "

Speaking to journalists after visiting the works of the fiber optic deployment between Súria and Solsona, Torra has thus encouraged to follow the example offered by the different institutions in the case of the Mobile World Congress (MWC), which has chosen to continue in Barcelona.

"All the institutions are saying the same thing: we do not consider the closure of Nissan valid, and this is principle number one. Number two is that we want to speak directly with Japan," said the president.

The Catalan chief executive added immediately: "We want a response from Japan, to talk to them. You cannot close and send 25,000 families to the streets in six months. It seems to us more than unfair: a terrible mistake."

Torra has reported that he has spoken by telephone with the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, and that both administrations will hold a meeting "at the highest level" next week to address this situation.
