Discusses three alternative scenarios for direct investment beyond 1992, stressing that from its early beginnings, Japanese participation in the EC has been oriented to Europe as a whole. Following an introduction and some theoretical considerations, the chapter illustrates the extent to which investment has always been most pronounced in those sectors in which the Japanese have long held a competitive innovatory and trading advantage. The authors then consider the locational advantages of production in Europe, the impact of 1992, and levels of Japanese investment post 1992, followed by a summary of the suggested investment scenarios and a postscript. -P.Hardiman
