JAPANESE car giant Toyota is planning a US$6 million expansion in Cambodia over the next two years in the face of falling domestic sales, according to its local distributor.

Further showrooms will be opened in cities including Battambang and Siem Reap, he added. Toyota expects to sell 750 vehicles this year, down from 1,100 in 2008.
