Toyota says to slow China output due to anti-Japan sentiment

BEIJING (Reuters) - Japanese car-maker Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) is likely to slow production in China as anti-Japan sentiment there hurts sales, a Toyota executive said on Wednesday.

    The executive, who declined to be named because any public comments were meant to be made via an official statement, said a report by Japan’s Asahi newspaper that it would completely halt China production in October was “not quite true”.

    Toyota is expected to make a statement later on Wednesday.
