Japanese auto giant Toyota said Wednesday it would recall nearly 1.3 million vehicles globally due to airbag and windscreen wiper problems. They were produced between 2001 and 2004 in Canada, Japan and the United States. The control unit of the airbags could be damaged by minor electrical noise, and the airbag could open wrongly in a worst-case scenario, the spokesman said. At least 47 cases of the malfunction had been reported, mainly in the United States. "Two of them may be linked to accidents but there has been no death-related report," the spokesman said, adding that Toyota would exchange the troubled parts under each country's recall guidelines. Toyota separately said it would recall some 385,000 Lexus IS cars globally to change windscreen wiper parts, following problems in snow. Once lauded for its safety standards, Toyota has been forced into damage control mode in recent years after recalling millions of vehicles due to a series of serious defects. Last month it said it had agreed to pay about $1.1 billion to settle a class action lawsuit launched by US vehicle owners affected by a series of mass recalls. But the automaker recaptured the title of world's biggest automaker from General Motors in 2012. On Monday it said its global sales last year soared 22.6 per cent to 9.75 million vehicles.

The Japanese economic daily of Nikkei reported that the 153-hectare industrial park in Vietnam's third-largest city that houses 53 companies, including Yazaki Corp., Toyoda Gosei Co. and Oji Paper Co., will be expanded to accommodate around 100 in the near future. NTT East will lay a total of 15km of cable there at a projected cost of several tens of millions of yen. The fiber-optic cables will provide high-speed Internet access and VPN (virtual private network) capabilities to the park's denizens, smoothing the way for teleconferencing and video transmission between Vietnam and foreign sites. The Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Corp., the company's Vietnamese partner, will lay the cables, with NTT East Corp. providing technology for connections, responding to failures and assisting with operations and maintenance. According to the daily, since 2007, NTT East has provided fiber-optic cables for Vietnam's Thang Long Industrial Park, where Canon Inc. and Panasonic Corp. both have plants.... [read more]

VietNamNet Bridge - Experts said that Vietnam can take full advantage of Japanese auto manufacturers’ support and Vietnamese businesses could, as a result, become second-class car part suppliers to Toyota and other foreign-invested enterprises (FIEs). Vietnam can take full advantage of Japanese auto manufacturers’ support and Vietnamese businesses could, as a result, become second-class car part suppliers to Toyota and other foreign-invested enterprises Toyota Motor Vietnam’s (TMV) managers have said that Toyota cars have higher localization ratios than any other car brands in Vietnam. Its five car models, including Vios, Corolla, Camry, Innova and Fortuner, have locally made content proportion of between 19 and 37 percent. Now TMV has 18 satellite companies which provide car parts. In order to increase the locally made content rate, TMV has asked Japanese car part manufacturers to set up a network of suppliers including Denso, Toyota Boshoku and Toyoda Gosei. Toyota’s localization program has raised controversy. Some analysts pointed out that though the percentage of car parts made in Vietnam has increased, Vietnam cannot benefit from this, because the car part suppliers are not Vietnamese, but FIEs which have factories in Vietnam. This means that Vietnamese businesses cannot join Toyota’s supply chain, and cannot get jobs from the automobile manufacturer. "In the last two decades, Vietnam did not think of developing supporting industries for automobile manufacturing, but only focused on assembling cars," Bui Ngoc Son from the World Economics & Politics Institute Nguyen Ba Hai from the HCM City University of Technique Education applauds…...
