Japanese manufacturing investment in Canada
Regional presence and integration strategies
ByJonathan Morris
Pages 20

The aim of this contribution is twofold. First, it will provide a description and analysis of the relatively recent growth of Japanese manufacturing activity in Canada. Second, its purpose is to illustrate the arguments outlined in other chapters of this book, notably the introductory chapter. That is, that regional world markets and production arenas are developing, that it is increasingly necessary for major world ‘players’ to be active within each regional market, and that this offers an explanation for a large part of Japanese manufacturing investment in Canada.
