Japan�s Manufacturing Competitiveness Strategy: Challenges for Japan, Opportunities for the United States [April 2009]
[full-text, 44 pages]

In recent years, Japan has been pursuing various strategies to promote the expansion of its economy, and its manufacturing sector in particular. Based on research and numerous interviews with key individuals in the Japanese government and manufacturing sector, this report examines these strategies, looks at their implications for the future of U.S.-Japan commercial relations, and discusses opportunities for U.S. firms looking to do business in Japan. Detailed case studies offer perspectives from government, industry, and academia on the success of Japan�s policies in fostering economic growth, and how these policies have been effective in helping the manufacturing sector to respond to the demographic and market challenges that Japan faces.
