Thoughts About The Drop In Production Figures
It is a challenging time for manufacturers with the entire nation being under a lock down. Businesses are bearing the brunt of the closure, and are suffering losses as a result of the lock down. The pandemic is taking a toll on the Auto Industry, and we expect that it will take time to recover. We hope the Industry recovers soon, and that manufacturing and sales go back to what they were.
