Japan's Mitsubishi Motors Corp plans to produce Galant cars in Taiwan at an affiliate, switching from imports from the United States, company officials say. The affiliate, China Motor Co, is likely to begin the local production next year, although details were yet to be decided, an official said yesterday. 'One reason for the move is to avoid the import duty' of 35 per cent, he said. The production will reach 1,200 units a month by May, the Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun reported on Monday.
