Japan and the US have similar problems in their accelerating demand for energy and heavy reliance on energy imports. Measures to meet energy requirements are centrally important to economic and foreign policy of both countries. The common course of detente with the USSR leads to parallel interests in acquiring Siberian energy. Project negotiations are seriously underway by Japanese and US companies with the USSR, and these developments pose new policy questions for the governments in Washington and Tokyo. The Japanese and US international search for energy is becoming a test case of cooperation of competition in inernational trade and monetary affairs. Long-term implications for US foreign, security, economic and environmental policies of the US approach to international energy questions require US governmental organization which can monitor rapid developments and respond with timely decisions, guidance and action.
