Akio Toyoda Plans US Trip for Safety Hearing

Friday, February 19, 2010

Akio Toyoda, Toyota's president, says he has changed his mind and will testify at a congressional hearing in the U.S. next week about his company's safety problems. Earlier this week, Toyoda had not planned to attend the hearing.

"I will be happy to attend. I will speak with full sincerity," Toyoda told The Associated Press Friday. "I am hoping our commitment to the United States and our customers will be understood."

The U.S. government is considering recalling more than 8 million Toyotas worldwide, including the Corolla, the Camry and the Prius hybrid.
