Toronto plays a central role in the conduct of economic activity in Canada. Most Japanese businessmen in Canada who work in this city enjoy to the fullest extent the warm hospitality of its people and government. And in June 1988, Toronto plays host to the most important event in international economic relations, the Economic Summit of Seven Major Industrialized Nations.

This paper explains how Japan sees the Toronto Summit and the Uruguay Round of the Multilateral Trade Negotiations of the GATT, what Japan expects from them and how Japan intends to make its modest contribution to those important events by discharging its responsibilities as a major economic power in the world today.
