South Korea: Japan dispute to hit global technology companies

  • Japan’s steps are inconsistent with World Trade Organization principles, South Korean government source says

SEOUL: Export curbs Japan imposed in its dispute with South Korea will adversely affect global technology companies and hurt the operations of tech giant Samsung in the Texas state capital of Austin, a South Korean government source said on Wednesday.
Japan’s steps are inconsistent with World Trade Organization principles, but South Korea wants to resolve the dispute through dialogue, the source told reporters in Seoul, speaking on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss negotiations.
If Japan goes so far as to drop South Korea from its “white list” of countries with minimum trade restrictions, it would cause a “tremendous amount of problems,” the source added.
