The Origin of Significant Japanese-Brazilian Trade and Investment Relations: Origin, Content and Consequences of the 1935 Japaneses Trade Mission to Brazil
This paper studies what I consider to be the true starting point of significant Japanese-Brazilian trade and investment relations, the 1935 Hirao Hachisaburo economic mission to Brazil. This mission was prompted by Japanese concern about the Japanese-American bilateral trade balance and geo-strategic control over natural resources. It resulted in a dramatic increase in Japanese imports of Brazilian raw cotton and numerous textile related and other Japanese investments in Brazil. These investments, in turn, would constitute a solid basis for post-war textile related and other investments in Brazil.
