FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear had the chance to meet briefly with Toyota president Akio Toyoda while the auto executive was in the state to visit the Georgetown plant that manufactures the Camry.
In a news release Thursday, Besehear described his meeting with Toyoda as "excellent," and said Toyoda thanked him for Kentucky's strong support of the company.
Beshear also repeated his stance that, while the most important priority is the safety of customers, "it is critcial that Toyota receive fair treatment from our federal government in their review of Toyota's recalls."
The governor called Toyota "a friend to all Kentuckians."
