Japan, Australia to confirm the importance of free trade

The Japanese government is hoping to advocate the importance of free trade with concerned countries after confirming the true intention of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, who has repeatedly been interfering in corporate activities. In mid-January, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will visit Australia, which is a member of the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade pact, for summit talks with its leader. According to a person close to the government, Abe is determined “to implement the TPP and promote free trade together with Australia.”

 

But a person close to the Prime Minister said “Trump’s tweet criticizing Toyota is drawing a great deal of attention, and it will be important for Japan to deal with the new president in a smart way.” Arrangements are underway for Abe to meet with Trump at the end of this month. During their summit talks, Abe plans to emphasize that Japanese businesses can contribute to the U.S. economy.
