Jakarta (VNA) –
Automobile manufacturers in Indonesia are ready to resume production in June following the government’s enforcement of the “new normal” scenario, said Chairman of the Association of Indonesian Automotive Manufacturers (Gaikindo) Yohannes Nangoi.

Toyota Motor Marketing Director Anton Jimmi said the firm is set to resume activities on June 1, adding that it will closely follow the government’s regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control.

PT Toyota Astra Motor also announced to restart production at the same time. Its head office is in Jakarta, so it is waiting for the city’s decision on the Large Scale Social Restriction (PSBB) policy to set the exact time of resumption.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia Director of Administration, Corporations and External Relations Bob Azam said that the company had plans to resume operation at the beginning of June.  

In the early phase, however, production lines will run at 50 percent of capacity and physical distancing measures will be applied among workers, he added./.
