Asahi published an interview with Jamieson Greer, who previously served as the chief of staff to the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR), in which he spoke on the second round of free trade talks between the U.S. and Japan. Regarding Tokyo’s call for removing U.S. import duties on Japanese autos, Greer reportedly said: “It is definitely a priority for Japan, but it is a very difficult subject to take on…. Both President Trump and USTR Lighthizer are very focused on the auto industry. As the U.S. has a trade deficit with Japan for auto and autoparts, they have strong concerns about the imbalance.”
