  • Description

    INTRODUCTION Japanese Government envoys continued their talks with European Common Market (EEC) officials in Paris on Friday (4 March) over the world ship building crisis. The EEC sought the meetings as part of a move to persuade the Japanese to reduce their ship construction which has seriously affected global production in general and western European shipyards in particular.

    SYNOPSIS: Before the latest round of talks opened, the Japanese met for a briefing session at their embassy in the French capital. Many of the nine member states of the Common Market have expressed alarm over the threat posed by Japanese shipyards. Although Japanese yards have gone through a period of slump, they have still been able to dominate much of the world market. This is because they can generally build faster -- and for less cost -- than their competitors.
