NEW YORK (Kyodo) Toyota Motor Corp. President-designate Akio Toyoda is considering visiting the United States in early August when he may meet with Fritz Henderson, chief executive officer of bankrupt General Motors Corp., sources said Thursday.

Should the meeting materialize, the leaders of the two automakers would apparently discuss the possibility of Toyota providing GM with environmental technologies, deemed vital for the reconstruction of GM, which has lagged behind Japanese rivals in hybrids and other fuel efficient cars.
