On March 29th, the Japanese Aluminum Association said it hoped the United States would abolish the new steel and aluminum tariffs. U.S. tariffs on aluminum violate international rules and pose serious problems.
Last week, President Trump temporarily excluded the EU and six other countries from the Levy of steel and aluminum tariff plan. The exempt countries include most of the US allies, but not Japan.
"We have to worry about the aluminum products rejected by United States will be exported to the Asian market," Japan aluminum association chairman Mitsuru Okada said.
"We will ask the Japanese government to continue to seek exemptions from the new U. S. tariff," added that Japanese aluminum manufacturers will seek a separate tariff exemption for aluminum products.
