Toyota Tsusho Receives Vehicles Order from Myanmar

Toyota Tsusho Co, a trading house affiliated with Japanese carmaker Toyota Motor Corp, received an order for 27 vehicles from the Myanmar government, the company said last week.
The vehicles are mainly dump trucks and will be used for the construction of roads in Karen state where an ethnic conflict has subsided recently, Toyota Tsusho Co said.
The Ministry of Construction made the order using official development assistance (ODA) from the Japanese government.
Toyota Tsusho, based in Nagoya, plans to start supplying the vehicles in 2014.
Myanmar’s mountainous Karen state, which is located in the southeast and borders Thailand, lacks basic infrastructure such as roads, power grids and bridges. Following the peace treaty struck with the Karen rebels, the government has taken up several development projects in the state.
Founded in 1948, Toyota Tsusho Corp is a member of the Toyota Group and one of the largest trading companies in Japan, and the 6th largest in the world.
Toyota Tsusho has over 150 offices and 900 subsidiaries, with 33,845 employees worldwide. Its main business is supporting Toyota Motor’s automobile business and other Toyota Group companies, spanning industrial, commercial and consumer sectors. It’s 2012 revenue stood at $71.9 billion.
