Industry minister Hiroshige Seko paid a visit to a Subaru plant in the United States to make the point that Japanese firms help the US economy.
Seko visited the plant on Thursday in the mid-western state of Indiana. It produces nearly 350,000 cars a year. That’s about half of the units Subaru sells in the US.
The visit came as US President Donald Trump considers a plan to raise tariffs on auto imports.
