A follow-up report made in October 1991 by the Japan-United States Economic Relations Group. This group was made up of eight private citizens whose task it was to make recommendations to Prime Minister Masayoshi Ohira and President Jimmy Carter on factors affecting the economic relationship between their two countries. The initial report made in January 1981 provided a comprehensive description of major issues and contained policy recommendations for the public and private sectors of both countries. Members of the Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE) served as executive director and research advisor to the group.
This supplemental report discusses the comments of the U.S. and Japanese governments and the private sectors to the January 1981 report, reviews some important issues in the two countries' economic relationship, and makes additional recommendations. This supplemental report marked the final activity of the group.
