Industrial Policy in Action: The Case of the Electronics Industry in Japan
Department or Administrative Unit
Faced with mounting import pressures in many industries, increasing attention is now focused on the idea of strategic trade policy intervention to enhance America's industrial competitiveness. The Japanese method of government-industry cooperation, is viewed by many as a model of such intervention. This paper provides an illustration of how government and industry cooperated to develop Japan's mighty electronics industry. Lessons from the Japanese experience can provide valuable policy guidance toward America's effort to revitalize its domestic industries.
