  • Description

    Prime Minister Robert Muldoon of New Zealand arrived in Tokyo on Thursday (22 April) for a week-long official visit to Japan.

    At a formal welcoming ceremony at Akasaka Palace, Mr. Muldoon, who is accompanied by his wife and a 10-member delegation, was greeted by Japanese Prime Minister Takeo Miki and members of his cabinet.

    During his stay in Japan, Mr. Muldoon will hold wide-ranging talks with Mr. Miki and Foreign Minister Kiichi Miyazawa. But the key negotiations will be with the International Trade and Industry Minister, Toshio Komoto, on Friday (23 April).

    The New Zealand Prime Minister is expected to urge Japan to buy more agricultural products from his country to correct a trade imbalance, currently six to five in Japan's favour.

    Japan is the third largest market for New Zealand's exports -- amounting to NZ$186 million (approx. US$139.5 million) during the 1974-1975 trade year. But informed sources point out New Zealand's access to the Japanese market for agricultural products has been unstable and irregular.

    Mr. Muldoon, who arrived in Tokyo from Seoul, will have an audience with Emperor Hirohito and Empress Nagakao on Friday afternoon. He will visit Nikko and the northern island of Hokkaido before leaving on Wednesday (28 April) for China.
