Thai auto output to halve mid-April to June - govt


BANGKOK, April 28 (Reuters) - Thailand's auto production is expected to halve from April 18 to June following Japan's March 11 earthquake and tsunami, the Industry Ministry said on Thursday. Output will be cut by 150,000 units in May and June, it said in a statement, without elaborating. Last week, Toyota's Thai unit said it planned to cut production for over a month due to supply disruptions. [ID:nL3E7FM0GR]. (Reporting by Boontiwa Wichakul)
