HÀ NỘI — Honda Vietnam announced late on Wednesday that it will resume the production of automobiles and motorbikes from today after 22 days of suspension to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nguyễn Huy Trung, head of the External Relations Division of Honda Vietnam, said that the resumption is carried out as the pandemic is being controlled in Việt Nam with no new cases reported in the last week.
Honda Vietnam commits to ensuring the health and safety of its staff, he added.
Earlier, the company twice announced the suspension of manufacturing cars and motorbikes, with the first from April 1-15 and the second from April 15-22 due to the developments of the disease.
Despite the pandemic, its automobile sales reached 1,968 units, up 40 per cent against the previous month, and motorbike sales reached 157,984 units, down 3 per cent.
In the month, Honda Vietnam exported 19,739 automobiles to different markets. — VNS
