Japan disaster to hinder Thailand's car production


Thailand may be expected to pick up the slack of the stricken auto industry following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan but car company executives from the Southeast Asian country say they were also affected by the double disaster.

According to Prachin Eamlumnow, chairman of Grand Prix International Co. Ltd. that organizes the Bangkok International Motor Show, Thailand's automotive manufacturing industry will feel the effect of the Japan disaster for about three months starting this April.
