Nissan is apparently reviewing its joint participation in a new factory in Morocco with its French partner Renault.

“We are currently looking at some delays or postponements in some of our projects, including Morocco,” a Nissan spokesperson told news agency AFP.

“But at this point in time we do not have any announcement,” the official added.

The Spanish newspaper El Pais reported Friday that Nissan had decided to withdraw from the joint project, which was announced in 2007.

The Tangiers factory was due to start operating in 2010 with an investment of 600 million euros.

Renault will now build a smaller plant on its own, the report said.
