Takeo Fukui told a UK national newspaper this week the carmaker had made “an error” building its plant in Swindon. He said it is a big problem that the UK is not in the Eurozone as its exchange rate is difficult to forecast.
Honda UK later issued a statement saying it respects the UK government’s policy concerning the Eurozone. It believes a single currency would help business efficiency.
Its manufacturing operation in Swindon is “on track” with its planned expansion.
