The impact of trade liberalization on producing regions in an importing country and a successful region: The case of Japanese orange industry and Mikkabi-town, 1970s – 1980s
While the advance of globalization is significant today, market-opening is often viewed pessimistically from a perspective of a huge impact on local economies in an importing country. In Japan, a critical voice is raised to Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement (TPP) from the agricultural sector, which is especially uncompetitive and placed in difficult situation in local regions. However, the influence of market-opening is not necessarily insurmountable. From a historic perspective, some producing regions survived in a liberalized competitive market. As the illustration, this research discusses Japanese orange industry and the successful producing region, Mikkabi-town, in liberalization of the orange market in Japan.
