Japanese automaker Nissan Motor Corporation has signed an agreement with the Kerala government to set up a new global digital hub in Thiruvananthapuram. This will be the first of its kind facility for the company across the globe, the company said. The digital centre would serve both the Indian and global markets. It may be noted that Nissan has already set up an R&D Centre, with 7,000 employees, and a manufacturing facility to produce 4.8 lakh units in the neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu, where it is facing a tax dispute.
