TOKYO : Toyota Motor Corp reopened a joint-venture plant in Changchun, which was suspended since mid-March, as the Chinese city's lockdown measures were eased, Kyodo news said on Sunday.

The Japanese automaker plans to resume regular operations on Wednesday, the report said, citing an unnamed source.

China auto sales plunged 11.7 per cent in March from a year earlier, after the country imposed strict lockdowns to contain the spread of the highly contagious Omicron variant.
