Japan's Fujitsu to cut 1,800 jobs in Britain under transformation plan

LONDON, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Japan’s Fujitsu Ltd said on Tuesday it plans to cut 1,800 jobs in Britain as part of a transformation programme to realign the firm to make it more competitive.

Japanese companies had been vocal in the run-up to Britain’s referendum on EU membership, warning that a vote to leave could damage jobs and prospects in the country.

The company released a short statement on Tuesday saying the job cuts were linked to plans to streamline its operations. No further comment was immediately available.
