TOKYO -- Japanese automaker Nissan is aiming to double its production in Thailand with plans for a new 30-billion-yen (US$376 million) factory near Bangkok, according to a report Wednesday.
The new facility in Samut Prakan province will be built near an existing Nissan plant, which emerged largely unscathed from record flooding last year that dented Japanese firms' production in the country, the Nikkei business daily said.
Nissan's existing plant temporarily stopped production during the disaster, however, owing to a parts shortage.
