We show that if $M = X \times Y$ is the product of two complex manifolds (of positive dimensions), then M does not admit any complete Kahler metric with bisectional curvature bounded between two negative constants. More generally, a locally-trivial holomorphic fibre-bundle does not admit such a metric.
