TOKYO (AP) - Toyota says its production recovery will be quicker
than initially expected by about a month, with car manufacturing
gradually picking up in Japan and abroad from next month.
Toyota Motor Corp. made the announcement in a statement
Wednesday ahead of releasing its earningss for the fiscal year
The Japanese automaker had initially said production
improvements wouldn't start in Japan until about July, and overseas
in August, with a full recovery not expected until late this year.
Toyota's car production has been disrupted by the magnitude-9.0
earthquake and ensuing tsunami that hit northeastern Japan on March 11.
