Toyota has shut down all three of its factories in Thailand until July 29 due to a shortage of parts. Kyodo News reports.
The shortage of parts arose due to the closure of the enterprise for their production due to the outbreak of the coronavirus in the country.
Toyota's Thai factories produce 760,000 vehicles annually. The corporation will take into account the number of COVID-19 infections, and will decide to reopen enterprises based on the situation.
Toyota will also suspend production at its Aichi Prefecture plant in Japan.
Earlier, due to a shortage of components, enterprises of AvtoVAZ, General Motors and other auto concerns suspended their work.
The third wave of COVID in Thailand intensified in July due to a spike in deltavirus infections that first swept India and now spreads across Southeast Asia. The Thai government has resorted to closing businesses in the affected provinces to contain the situation. Toyota factories were included in these areas, but car manufacturing was not a prohibited activity.
