The USA and Japan were in negotiations for a period of ten years, (1977-1988) over oranges. The Americans had certain goals that they wanted to accomplish in these negotiations. These goals included; exporting of American oranges in the Japanese market, demand that Japan liberalizes its markets, and to eliminate the trade barriers in Japan. The Japanese also had their own goals that they wanted to accomplish in the negotiation process. These included; maintaining its positive image outside Japan, avoiding intervention from GATT, and to avoid sanctions from abroad.
Initially, the Japanese refused to negotiate right away, and started negotiating only when Americans threatened them that they would take the issue to AT panel. Using Hofstede’s Model of Cultural Dimensions, compare and contrast the cultual differences that might influenceboth parties.
Based on cultural differences, develop a culturally responsive strategy for American negotiators to deal with Japanese negotiators.
