Important news for the North East economy. Nissan has announced a £100m investment in their car plant at Washington, Tyne and Wear which will safeguard thousands of jobs at the plant itself and among the many supply-chain contractors who have clustered around the giant car manufacturing base. More details here from the BBC: Nissan has around 5% of the total cars sold in the UK each year. In 2014 Nissan produced 4.2 million cars globally and the UK plant is the most productive car factory in the European Union.
