Japanese Economy Minister Opposes Steps That Artificially Manage Trade Flows

Japanese Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said on Friday he was opposed to any measures that artificially manage trade flows and that he would seek a trade deal with the United States that was in Japan’s economic interests.

Motegi spoke in parliament in response to questions about whether the United States would seek a cap on the number of auto imports from Japan to lower its trade deficit.
