Japanese Government Urgently Inspects Russian Dependent Supplies

In response to the tense situation in Ukraine, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has begun to identify critical commodities that are dependent on imports from Russia. This is due to the fear that if economic sanctions against Russia are imposed, Russia will halt exports in retaliation, making procurement difficult. The Ministry has asked companies about the possible impact on gas used in the manufacture of semiconductors, and is exploring ways to minimize the impact through alternative procurement and inter-company accommodation.
