  • Description

    President Jose Lopez Portillo of Mexico has arrived (30 October) in Japan for talks with Japanese leaders.

    SYNOPSIS: President Portillo and his wife arrived in Tokyo on Monday (30 October) to be met by Emperor Hirohito, Crown Prince Akihito and Crown Princess Michiko, at the Akasaka Palace. The visit to the Palace marked the official beginning of the President's six day tour.

    The audience with the Emperor presaged the talks that President Portillo was to have with leaders of the Government. At the Palace he met Cabinet leaders and Prime Minister Takeo Fukuda.

    It is understood that trade between the two countries was to be one of the leading topics of discussion. Mexican-Japanese trade was almost at a standstill during the first half of 1977 but showed a strong recovery during the second half of the year. During his talks with Prime Minister Fukuda, the subject of imbalance of trade between the two countries was expected to also be discussed. In 1977, Japan exported more than 84 and a half million US dollars worth of goods to Mexico, but imported form that country only 74 and a half million dollars worth. Trade between the two countries is generally concentrated i a few traditional products. Japanese exports to Mexico consist mainly of capital goods and equipment such as iron and steel sheets, engines, vehicles and chemicals. Japanese purchases from Mexico are mainly primary products.

    As well as several rounds of talks with Prime Minister Fukuda, President Portillo planned to talk with leaders of Japanese industry and commercial organisations. President Portillo was to end his visit with a tour of three provincial prefectures.
