Nissan, 44% owned by Renault, will follow rival Toyota into China when it signs a joint venture deal this week with Dongfeng Motor, China's third-largest carmaker, the Financial Times (FT) said. The FT said that a tense stand-off over control of the operation had finally been resolved and that it understood that Carlos Ghosn, Nissan's president and chief operating officer, will fly to China to sign the deal.
