The Philippines’ largest vehicle assembler plans to returns to normal operations next month, after the disruption caused by Japan’s triple disaster at the end of the first quarter.

In a text message to reporters, Rommel Gutierrez, Toyota Motors Philippines Corp. (TMPC) vice president for corporate affairs, said the company would resume two-shift operations starting June, citing an “improved supply condition outlook due to the concerted effort of all Toyota suppliers.”

Gutierrez said production levels would be “almost back to normal” by June.

He said Toyota Motor Corp. of Japan last week announced that its global output recovery would begin next month, with near-term production levels expected to hit about 70 percent.

The disasters that hit Japan—a leading automotive and parts manufacturer—last March put the auto industry supply chain in disarray, leading to production cuts among vehicle and parts makers worldwide.

TMPC this month slashed its operations to a single shift each day.

It normally churns out about 120 units of the Innova and Vios models per day at its Santa Rosa City, Laguna facility.

Gutierrez said there is “no plan at this time to revise production forecast for the year.” TMPC had said it plans to match last year’s output of about 28,000 units—an all-time high for the company.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
