The vision for owned media Toyota Times

With the launch of a newscast program, President Akio Toyoda reiterated the role of Toyota Times.

Akio
To begin with, Toyota Times is owned media. Recently, with the flood of news via social and older forms of media, I think it’s hard for viewers to know where to turn. I felt that it would be good for Toyota Times to give our perspective, and share our ideas and vision, to give viewers a better understanding alongside other sources.

Tomikawa
As a news anchor, I’m used to doing even-handed reporting. Can I keep that perspective here at Toyota?

Akio
Please do. You ask what you want to know, and we’ll give you our viewpoint. That way, I hope many people will come to see what Toyota is doing. Please ask whatever you’d like to ask.
