Abstract

Some trade measures inevitably have a greater effect on developing countries because of their coverage or intention, although most of Japan’s trade policy conforms with the GATT rule of nondiscrimination. The General System of Preference (GSP), an internationally recognised exception to the general rule, is of course one such measure. Japan’s stance on the Multi-Fiber Agreement (MFA) is unique among developed countries, and attention will be given to this in this chapter, as will tariff discrimination between imports from developed and developing countries, which has also given rise to trade friction.
