Abstract : In recent years, tensions in US-Japanese trade relations have grown considerably. Nowhere is this friction more apparent than in the trade in automobile products between the two countries. In the wake of President Bush's recent trip to Japan, a select number of decision makers in both the United States and Japanese automobile industries have asserted their considerable influence upon their colleagues in the industry and upon key sectors in government. This report focuses on the role of specific individual business leaders in Japan's automotive industry and also includes a profile of one organization, the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, Inc. (JAMA). Whenever possible, special attention has given to exploring the personalities of the individuals targeted in this study and analyzing their respective positions in the Japanese automobile corporate decision making process.
