NHK reported online that the U.S. International Trade Commission held a hearing for domestic industrial groups on Dec. 6 ahead of the Japan-U.S. trade talks starting in January. A U.S. auto workers union official reportedly claimed that the Japanese auto market is closed and this is a major cause of the U.S. trade deficit with Japan, demanding the elimination of non-tariff barriers in order to expand U.S. auto exports. He also accused Japan of currency manipulation to depreciate the yen for the purpose of promoting its exports. NHK also cited a dairy product industry official’s call for concessions from Japan above the level of its existing trade agreements with other countries in the upcoming trade talks.
