The Commerce Department said yesterday that some Japanese companies have been dumping flat-panel display screens -- used mainly on laptop computers -- in the U.S. market.After a six-month preliminary investigation, the department concluded that a handful of Japanese companies were engaging in unfair competition by selling some of their products below the cost of production. The department ordered the companies to pay anti-dumping duties on their imports.The immediate effect will be minimal, since the duties imposed yesterday range from 1.46 percent of the selling prices -- levied against Toshiba -- to 4.6 percent levied against Sharp.

TOKYO Japan's Finance Ministry has begun an investigation into whether Japanese brokerage houses intimidated two Japanese companies into canceling an agreement to issue new bonds through Salomon Brothers, an American brokerage with offices in Tokyo.The ministry's confirmation that the investigation is taking place out of the public eye appears to be a tacit acknowledgement of a discriminatory practice that the ministry has long said does not exist.The case has potentially broader implications, both for American efforts to obtain fairer competition in the Japanese financial markets and for the Finance Ministry's battle to keep other Japanese regulators out of its territory.

TOKYO -- Corporate takeovers in Japan by foreign companies can be expected to increase in numbers and size throughout this decade, says a survey conducted by a private Japanese research organization.The study by the Foundation for Advanced Information and Research says the pace of cross-border corporate mergers and acquisitions is likely to accelerate because of a shortage of Japanese engineers who can be recruited for Japanese companies and the evolution of business strategies.Most of the Japanese companies available for takeovers by foreign corporations have been relatively small.

The critical question was who has the best management style."The answer is somewhere in the middle," says James Cramer, executive director of the University of Maryland's International Business and Management Institute (IBMI)
