NISSAN TO HOLD MEETING IN TOKYO FOR U.S. PARTS SUPPLIERS

 NISSAN TO HOLD MEETING IN TOKYO FOR U.S. PARTS SUPPLIERS
 DETROIT, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. will host a


meeting in Tokyo next month for about 50 American auto suppliers to introduce them to ways of increasing product sales to Japan's second largest automaker.
 Scheduled for Feb. 4-5, the two-day meeting called "Forward Together" is designed to explain Nissan's purchasing policies, import plans, and research and development policies and processes.
 "We feel that these sorts of meetings will be an effective way to boost our purchases of American-made parts," Nissan North America Director Junichi Hashiguchi said. "Through dialogue with top executives in Tokyo, the participants will learn more about Nissan's particular needs and ways of doing business. We hope that the outcome will be mutually satisfying and produce long-term relationships with some of America's premier auto supply companies."
 Hashiguchi said the event was conceived in summer and organized last November, well before the recent trade visit to Japan by President George Bush. About 140 representatives from some of America's largest auto suppliers are scheduled to attend the meeting. Among the list of U.S. suppliers confirmed to attend are: Allied-Signal, Inc.; TRW Inc.; Tenneco Automotive; General Motors Powertrain Division and Asian Technical Center; Borg-Warner Automotive, Inc.; and Johnson Controls, Inc.
 The U.S. suppliers will tour Nissan's Technical Center facilities and have the opportunity to tour the Nissan Zama Plant, or the main plants of two of Nissan's Japanese suppliers -- Atsugi Unisia or Ikeda Bussan.
 Nissan is the world's fourth largest automotive manufacturer. Its North American operations include styling, engineering, manufacturing, sales, consumer and corporate finance, and industrial equipment and textiles. Nissan employees more than 8,700 people in the United States and Canada.
