A gong for Ghosn

It is reported in Britain that Renault boss Carlos Ghosn is to be appointed a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire although, as a foreigner, he will not be able to use the title "Sir Carlos". The reward comes for the Brazilian-born, French-educated Lebanese chief executive of Renault and Nissan's services to Anglo-Japanese relations, which relates to the Nissan manufacturing plant in Sunderland.
