Listed author(s):
  • Christian Milelli

[fre] Cet article souligne la mise en œuvre au cours de l'année 1980 par le Japon d'une nouvelle stratégie de relations commerciales avec le Mexique. En raison des menaces pesant sur le marché international des hydrocarbures, le Japon dont la maîtrise de l'approvisionnement énergétique est au cœur même de sa sécurité économique a réagi très rapidement. Ainsi, vis-à-vis du Mexique qui dispose de nombreux atouts tant économiques que politiques, s'est amorcé à l'initiative du Japon un processus de spécialisation réciproque parfait : des hydrocarbures en contrepartie de biens d'équipement et de savoir-faire. Ces derniers sont offerts par le Japon dans des domaines où il excelle — sidérurgie, infrastructures de transport — au Mexique qui en a le plus grand besoin.
