Time to get the hell out of China. Corona is just one of the many issues which could disrupt manufacturing there. If geopolitical issues continue to heat up, the flow of components and manufactured good to/from China will be the next target.

Now is the right time to start to isolate brutal Chinese CCP regime. If we don't do it now we will regret later and there will be no way back.

I am very happy that they have decided to move production back to Japan. I hope more companies will follow. A number of viruses originated in China. The world has not recovered from Corona and already there is a new variant of the Swine flu discovered there. And that is not all, in recent history China has proven more than once that it will blackmail international businesses for political gain. So get out of China as fast as you can!!!

Pretty sure that the Chinese own most of JDI. Do not believe everything you read in this case.

@Tara tan Kitaoka - right question, wrong time... Companies should have asked that question, and assessed the risk of putting all their eggs in one basket before shipping local production offshore.... now, many have been left with Egg on their faces.

Just because Australia and Canada stupidly sold out to the Chinese in the 2010's, doesn't mean everyone else did. Japan at least has some resemblance of a backbone.
