About The Book :

Japan's trade relations with India are traditional, strategic and of vital importance. These trade relations are in the upswings and poised for a new turn.
Japan is India's third biggest trading partner after the USSR and the USA. It accounts for nearly 10 percent of India's total trade. But the share of India in Japan's total trade is barely 0.9 percent. Although India's trade with Japan has been increasing over the years, it has had a trade deficit with Japan in the current decade so far. Hence, the need of the hour is to increase our exports to Japan.
This study seeks to review Japan's trade relations with India over a period of almost three decades, beginning 1960. It endeavors to identify the main items of imports and exports that offer increasing trade prospects between India and Japan. It further studies the major constraints standing in the way of increasing total trade in terms of volume and value. It also suggests suitable strategies to increase exports from India to Japan.
This study is the outcome of Dr. Iqbal's research work done at the Institute of Developing Economies, Tokyo, (Japan), as a Visiting Research Fellow from 10th February, 1988 to 1st September 1988.

Dr. Badar A. Iqbal's painstaking study covers practically all aspects of the growing trade relations between India and Japan. Japan, in recent years, has emerged as one of India's largest trade partner as well as aid doner. Dr. Iqbal's study, by providing practioners and scholars in the subject with a very timely analysis of factors influencing Indo-Japan trade, should be a valuable addition to the Literature on the subject.
Japan being one of the foremost industrial powers in the world, offers vast scope for Indian Industry and commerce to take advantage of Indian's proximity to the country for keeping abreast of the world in sophisticated technological developments. The present study of India's trade with Japan, therefore, acquires much significance.
I am sure all concerned individuals and institutions will find the book very useful and Dr. Iqbal deserves compliments for making his scholarship easily accessible to all.
