The hottest export restrictions from Japan to Sout

  • Detail

The countdown to the escalation of Japan's export restrictions on South Korea: electric vehicles and precision instruments have become a new round of targets

according to Yonhap news on July 30, according to Japanese local media and industry on August 30, Japan will hold a cabinet meeting as soon as August 2 to deal with the amendment of the export trade management order that excludes South Korea from the "white list"

since Japan announced the amendment to the export trade administration order in early July, the Korean government has successively sent high-level personnel to the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United States to spare no effort to prevent the amendment, but Japan's position has not changed

in the written reply to the challenge submitted by the planning and Finance Committee of the National Congress, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of planning and finance of the Republic of Korea Hong Nanji said that if the Republic of Korea is excluded from the "white list", the objects of export restrictions from Japan to the Republic of Korea may be expanded, and the relevant departments of the Republic of Korea are closely cooperating with the possible additional retaliation

in addition, South Korea's main development industries in the future, such as electric vehicles and chemistry and precision instruments, which are highly dependent on Japan, will become its next goal

according to the analysis of the Institute of modern economics, the comparative results of the competitiveness of major industries in South Korea and Japan show that textile fibers, chemical industry, vehicles, aircraft, ships and other industries are more than 90% dependent on Japan's imports. Most of the necessary materials and parts for electric vehicle batteries and hydrogen fuel electric vehicle tanks are also made in Japan. While preventing the export of products highly dependent on Japan to South Korea, Japan has set up non-tariff barriers on the main export products of South Korea

as a powerful country in scientific instruments, Japan has many strong instrument brands. The following shows which famous brands in the field of Japanese scientific instruments have been shortlisted in the world from the top 20 list of global instrument companies in 2018 published by c&en magazine in early 2019

Japanese brands in the top20 list of global instrument companies in 2018
