  • Description

    Japan's floating industrial fair - the 10,000-ton Aki Maru - lay moored at Auckland, Nov 21, when her three-day goodwill call began with a cocktail party addressed by Japanese Ambassador Ishiguro.

    Mr Anderson, New Zealand's Minister of Internal Affairs, cut the ceremonial tape, and Aucklanders were free to wander about the ship to form an impression of what Japan's industries have to offer to the world.

    There was a wide range of goods on display - from typewriters and sewing machines to cars and heavy machinery. Some of these products have little prospect of making a dent in the New Zealand market, which is partly tied up with Australian, British and other trade. But, economic exchange between Japan and New Zealand has become livelier since the 1958 trade agreement.

    In Australia, where the Aki Maru is due next on her South-East Asia voyage, the customs are reported to have seized many thousands pounds worth of Japanese goods, including car spares, said to be bearing fake trade marks.
