Nissan Keeps Upbeat Outlook Despite US, Global Uncertainties

Toshiyuki Shiga

Nis­san Motor COO Toshiyu­ki Shi­ga finds it dif­fi­cult to have an opti­mistic view of the U.S. mar­ket in light of the weak­en­ing econ­o­my and weak dol­lar ver­sus the yen. But Nis­san still remains con­fi­dent that it can over­ride these weak­ness­es, off­set­ting the US mar­ket with strong sales in Brazil, Rus­sia, India and Chi­na and defin­ing its strat­e­gy clear­ly to its share­hold­ers.
