TOKYO (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp President Akio Toyoda will announce on March 9 management's vision for where the world's top automaker is headed over the next decade as it turns a corner on its worst ever safety crisis.

Toyota officials said they could not provide any details on the so-called Toyota Global Vision until the presentation, to be made in Tokyo at 4 p.m. (0700 GMT) on March 9. With the recall crisis dissipating, Toyoda had said last month he wanted to outline his corporate vision for 2020, flagging the announcement around spring.

Toyoda's predecessor, Katsuaki Watanabe, had outlined in late 2007 a general direction for the company under Toyota Global Vision 2020 that included the spread of hybrid technology to all models, a vision for next-generation mobility on a community-wide basis, and the commercialization of its humanoid robot business.
