    According to Sky


    Sources said that Honda was likely to relocate the manufacturing capability at Swindon to its home market of Japan.

    The ability to guarantee tariff-free exports to the EU is understood to have been among the factors persuading the company of the merits of its decision.
    Clever old Japan with its FTA with EU.
