Japanese Firms See Limited Impacts from S. Korean Trade Action

Japanese Firms See Limited Impacts from S. Korean Trade Action

   Tokyo, Aug. 13 (Jiji Press)--Many Japanese companies have said that South Korea's removal of Japan from its list of countries for preferential treatment in export controls is likely to have only limited impacts on their operations.
   Still, they are keeping a close watch on the situation as the details of the South Korean trade action, including which items will be affected, have not been revealed yet. There are also concerns about a possible further escalation of the boycott of Japanese products in South Korea.
   The South Korean measure, slated to take effect next month, will increase the red tape for exports to Japan of "strategic goods" that can be used in weapons of mass destruction and lengthen the time for related screenings from the current five days to 15 days.
   According to South Korean media reports, items to be affected by the measure are expected to include those related to semiconductors and telecommunications equipment.
   Those items from South Korea do not appear indispensable for Japanese electronics, automotive and other manufacturers.
