Hanoi, March 30th, 2020 – The outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19) has impact on all aspects, from economy to society, including the automobile industry. In addition, up to now, Toyota dealers in Hanoi temporarily close showrooms & workshops in accordance with the direction of the Government and Hanoi People Committee in order to prevent the outbreak spread. Toyota Motor Vietnam decided to adjust the production plan to be in line with the current situation.
Specifically, Toyota Motor Vietnam will temporarily suspend vehicle production from March 30th, 2020. The actual re-production date will be decided upon the outbreak situation, market demand, supply chain situation, the dealers’ stock and Government’s restriction regulation.
“The safety and security of our employees, our stakeholders, our Customers and the community is paramount to us”, said Toyota Vietnam’s representative. “We are taking necessary actions to protect their safety and health as well as minimizing any impact on our company’s operation. While closely monitoring the situation, we will consider and make decisions guided by the direction from the Government”.
After the outbreak was announced national-wide, in order to maintain good hygiene and build an uncontaminated environment at the workplace, Toyota Vietnam actively applies necessary preventive measures: Spray disinfectant in areas, provide masks and hand-washed liquid, body temperature checks, set-up regulations to minimize the infection risk to employees, etc. Employees are also being encouraged to maintain social distancing, work from home, practice respiratory hygiene, wash hands more often and stay at home if they see any suspicious symptoms, inform and obey Government’s guideline. Toyota Vietnam absolutely complies with the regulations and guidelines on disease prevention of the Government, Ministry of Health and others related departments.
Earlier, in February and March 2020, with the desire to join hands to fight the outbreak, sharing the difficulties that the Government and people nationwide are facing, Toyota Vietnam donated 10 billion dong to the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee and 1.1 billion dong to Vinh Phuc province.
