NAGOYA (Kyodo) -- Toyota Motor Corp. said Thursday it has opened a training center for automobile assembly workers in Indonesia at a cost of 20 million yen.

Built within the compound of Toyota's Karawang plant in the suburbs of Jakarta, the 3,700-square-meter center has facilities identical with those at an auto plant and enables trainees to learn welding, pressing and other skills, the biggest Japanese automaker said.

The center can accept up to 5,300 trainees a year.

While the center is aimed at upgrading the quality of local Toyota workers, it will offer training programs to workers from suppliers and students, starting next year, so as to contribute to the development of the Indonesian auto industry, according to Toyota.
