A review, in some detail, of abandoned speech topics: Canada's trading relationship with Japan; the market itself and developments in it; how to do business in Japan; the complicated distribution system of Japan; the mysterious system of "Japan Incorporated;" the industrial emergence of Japan in the aftermath of World War II; developments in Japan with regard to nuclear energy, the prospects of selling CANDU to Japan; the Japanese political situation. Then, the topic of choice: Canada's new efforts in Japan to broaden and deepen their relationship. A detailed discussion of various aspects of that relationship. The framework for economic cooperation. Opportunities for both Canada and Japan.
