Sony to sell land at factory site in Gifu

Kyodo

Sony Corp. is arranging the sale of 5.6 hectares of land in Minokamo, Gifu Prefecture, where the closing of its factory there last month seriously affected the regional economy, Gifu Gov. Hajime Furuta told reporters Monday.

Furuta visited Sony headquarters in Tokyo earlier in the day to ask that the premises be put to effective use and the former factory workers relocated.
