Abstract of History of Japan's Trade and Industry Policy : Abstract of Tetsuji Okazaki (ed.), History of Japan's Trade and Industry Policy (3) Industry Policy (Japanese)

1) The second series of the History of Japan's Trade and Industry Policy , comprising 12 books (the first volume with a general overview and the remaining 11 volumes with detailed expositions on the main policy items) were published that not only record objective facts about the drafting process of the policy at the time and the situation of the industry and the economy that required such drafting, but also analyze and evaluate policy for the period 1980 through 2000. 2) However, it is not easy for people to read all 12 books and understand the history of policy. Subsequently, we made an abstract of each book to assist in using it in policy evaluation and policy making. The 12 abstracts describe the main points of the policy clearly and collect policy evaluation, and our hope is that they are utilized as the guide for each book. 3) This PDP is abstract of Tetsuji Okazaki (ed.), History of Japan's Trade and Industry Policy (3) Industrial Policy , Keizai Sangyo Chosakai, 2012.
