Executive Vice President Yukitoshi Funo speaks at a ceremony at a hotel in Seoul, South Korea, to launch the company's business in the country. Toyota is shrugging off a sales plunge in China set off by a territorial dispute and says it is headed to a record year on the back of strong growth in the rest of Asia and the U.S. Funo acknowledged Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 that achieving the company's target of 9.76 million vehicle sales this year will be harder because of the problems in China.
