Japan has been the most powerful country in Asia, but it had little trade with the region until now. Now, Japan is doing more trade with Asia than with the rest of the world.

In 1985 the US was Japan's main customer; Japan exported a third more to the US than to Asia. Now, Asia buys 30% more than the US and three times as much as Europe. Japanese imports from Asia increased by 150% between 1985 and 1995. Now, Japan's imports amount to $60 billion from Asia in 1993, compared to $50 billion from the US and $24 billion from Europe.

In 1994, Japan invested $7.7 million in Asia. During the next few years, 75% of Japan's direct investment will be there. Japanese investment in the region is now $64 billion, as against US investment of $26 billion, or German investment of $7 billion.

Thailand expects new Japanese investment to reach $8 billion by 1998. Already, Japan controls 90% of Thailand's auto market. Labour costs in Japan are high, so Japanese companies are setting up in countries where workers get paid much less; an increasing number of Japan's employees now live outside Japan.

F or years, Vietnam had a classical Marxist economic system characterised by central planning and control. Then, in 1986, the policy of opening up the country to market forces and foreign investment was introduced. Ten years later, the effects can be see everywhere. Take the city of Hanoi for example. Five years ago you could wander around on foot without worrying about traffic. The city itself was peaceful and elegant, with lovely tree-lined avenues and many buildings of great architectural interest. The scene today is very different. Traffic has become a serious problem: Vietnam has 330,000 cars and over four million motorbikes, four times the number there were in 1990. Small hotels and office buildings are springing up all of the city, and commercial rents in Hanoi are now as high as in Paris and 70% higher than in Sydney.
