Among Japan's industries, too, the automotive sector has been at the vanguard of internationaliz ation, both through exports and overseas production. Yet, Japan's car industry remains much less globalized than its counterparts in Europe and the United States. Not only is there now holly - foreign carmaker manufacturing vehicles in Japan. If the Nissan c ase is representative, Japanese companies, although operating internationally, have also been slow to adopt an integrated global business perspective. At least to some extent, this has begun to change in recent years. Foreign companies have been able to m ake inroads, entering equity participations or joint ventures with Japanese companies. In the process, they have introduced advanced managementtechniques (such as in Nissan's financial operations) and Western - style employmentpractices (such as performance based promotion and remuneration). They have alsocontributed to a shift in the management objective of Japanese companies from marketshare to profitability. But probably the most important area in which foreign companieshave been a catalyst for change is i n industry structure. The dissolution of the Nissan keiretsu has meant that, on the one hand, about half of thecompany's traditional suppliers have lost (one of) their main customer(s). On the otherhand, the reorganization of parts procurements at Nissan has helped some traditional suppliers, such as Calsonic Kansei , to expand, and has opened the door to new, often foreign suppliers. But consolidation in the supplier industry has not been confined to Nissan keiretsu members, as a growing number of foreign companies have acquired stakes in other Japanese counterparts or entered joint ventures. This not only has made the composition of the car industry in Japan more international but has also helped Japanese suppliers to strengthen their global capabilities to serve customers worldwide. Required: a. Offer your views on Japanese FDI trend. b. What challenges Japan had to encounter with regard to FDI? c. Discuss the future possibilities for Japan in the context of FDI.
