Mainichi ran a Kyodo story from Washington saying that the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association released on Tuesday a report saying that Japanese automakers employed a total of 92,710 people in the United States as of 2017, up from 28,571 in 1990. Kyodo speculated that the report is aimed at emphasizing the Japanese auto industry’s contributions to the U.S. economy, thereby deflecting Trump administration pressure. The article said that Japanese auto manufacturers are planning to ramp up their investment in the United States in response to President Trump’s goal of reviving the U.S. manufacturing industry and speculated that the United States will put more pressure on Japan to open its auto market at their ministerial-level trade talks to be launched in July.
