  • Description

    Canadian and Japanese ministers have begun discussions in Tokyo on Monday (23 June) on ways to improve trade and economic relations between their two counties.

    At the seventh conference of the Canadian-Japanese Ministerial Committee, the delegates are expected to cover a wide range of subjects including multi-national trade negotiations under the General Agreement on Tariff and Trade (GATT).

    They are also expected to exchange views on the problem of oil and primary products at the conference -- the first in four years.

    It has been reported that during the talks, Canada might ask Japan to import Canadian-built nuclear reactors and short-take-off-and-landing aircraft. Quoting Government sources, the report added that Canada was dissatisfied with Japanese imports centering on Canadian raw materials such as copper are, coal, timber and wheat, and hoped that Japan would increase purchases of industrial products.

    The Canadian delegation includes the Secretary of State for External Affairs, Mr. Allan Maceachen, the Minister of Industry and Commerce, Mr. Alastair Gillespis, the President of the Treasury Board, Mr. Jean Chretien and the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources, Mr. Eugene Whelan.

    The Japanese side is represented by foreign Minister Mr. Kiichi Miyazawa, the Director-General of the Economic Planning Agency, Mr. Takeo Fukuda, Finance Minister Masayoshi Ohira and several other Cabinet ministers.
