Production still on track


Production disruptions stemming from the disaster in Japan will not affect Thailand's goal of manufacturing 1.8 million cars this year, says the Thailand Automotive Institute.

''Many companies in Japan have already resumed production. The electricity is back on, and I think the situation will return to normal very soon, hopefully this week or next. Auto parts can then start being shipped here again,'' said director Vallop Tiasiri.
