Peter Tasker reflects on abe's visit to america

Peter Tasker comments on what Abe's recent and apparently successful visit to the new President of the United States means for US-Japan relations in the future. He makes the point that while the rounds of golf were an excellent start, Trump will require some reciprocity from Japan, just as he is from Europe. Will Mexico be the loser if Japanese companies decide to make new investment inside the US rather than outside?    

 

Peter is, among other things, a well respected commentator on Japanese politics and economics for nearly 40 years. William used to work with him in the mid 1980s in Tokyo.
