This swine flu is serious business, but one aspect the general public might not think about is how the current outbreak is interrupting the activities of multi-national corporations.

In response to the potential rise of a flu pandemic, Honda Motor Co has suspended global business travel until at least May 6, with a possible recommendation that Japanese employees at the company’s Mexico offices return to Japan.

Honda isn’t the only company taking such moves, with more than a few Asian companies looking to minimise the virus’ impact on business and staff.

Denso Corp, the world’s largest listed parts maker for the automotive industry, has made exactly such a recommendation, calling for families of ex-patriate Japanese staff in Mexico to return home.
