Fuji TV reported that some major Japanese firms have ordered their employees stationed overseas not to leave their host countries due to the growing number of nations restricting travel to and from Japan. According to the network, Toshiba, which has worldwide offices, asked all of its employees stationed overseas to refrain from leaving their host countries, even for private travel, on the grounds that more nations may follow the lead of India in deciding to void visas issued to Japanese nationals. The network said Suzuki Motors, which has more than a 50% share in the automobile market in India, is also asking its employees stationed overseas not to leave their host countries. Noting that President Trump has hinted that the U.S. may ban travelers from Japan from entering the nation, the network quoted a source familiar with the automobile industry as saying that such a measure would deal a heavy blow to the industry.
