Abstract : The United States runs its largest bilateral trade deficit with Japan. Many believe that part of this problem is the issue of U.S. access to the Japanese market. This paper identifies the U.S. Government agencies responsible for trade activities, discusses current trade problems, and surveys a series of recent approaches to dealing with trade issues. The various approaches discussed are bilateral negotiations, Market-Oriented Sector-Specific (MOSS), the Structural Impediments Initiative, and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT).
