BANGKOK POST: Producers forecast Q2 sales dip on Japan quake

Sales of new vehicles could decline slightly in the second quarter as local manufacturers experience delays in obtaining supplies from Japanese parts makers affected by that country's earthquake and tsunami.

Piengjai Keawsuwan, the vice-president of Siam Nissan Automobile, said its sales target of 74,000 units this year might be affected because of problems securing high-tech parts from Japan.
