Abstract


The paper outlines the relation of Japan, especially its private banking facilities, to the Latin America foreign problem. It gives relevant background information and examines the approach taken by Japanese financial circles. Japan has now become the country with the world’s biggest trade surplus and is regarded as having the largest financial reserves. But Japan’s presence iii discussing fundamental debt relief measures has not been significant as its total amount of credit might imply.
