    The European Economic Community ( E.E.C. ) Commissioner for External Trade, Mr. Ralf Dahrendorf, began?

  • Description

    The European Economic Community ( E.E.C. ) Commissioner for External Trade, Mr. Ralf Dahrendorf, began preliminary trade talks with Japanese Foreign Minister, Mr. Kiichi Aichi, in Tokyo on Tuesday ( 17 November ). The round of negotiations concern a proposed three-year trade agreement between Japan and E.E.C. member countries.

    The series of top-level meetings began when Mr. Dahrendorf arrived at the Japanese Foreign Ministry to meet Mr. Aichi, before making calls on officials of the Trade, Finance, and Agriculture Ministries.

    Government sources in Japan have indicated that the main points likely to be discussed will include a "safeguard" clause limiting any excessive flow of Japanese goods into the Common Market countries. Japan opposes the clause and is expected to tell the Commissioner that there's no danger of such an excessive goods flow. Japanese newspapers have reported their government is seeking assurance that the E.E.C. will not demand a voluntary restraint on Japanese textile imports, even if this is imposed by the American market. Mr. Dahrendorf is spending four days in Japan.
