Since President Trump took office, trade has been a subject of serious discussion around the world. Trump has been seeking to strike numerous bilateral deals, as opposed to regional and multilateral accords. Japan, one of the United States’ closest allies, also remains wary about the overall economic impact of Trump’s trade policy. The United States has called for bilateral trade talks with Japan in order to reduce America’s trade deficit. How will Trump address the country’s trade deficit with Japan? Will Trump impose steep tariffs on imported Japanese automobiles and components? In this program, experts discuss current and future U.S.-Japan trade relations, and the possibility of a bilateral trade deal between the two countries.
