Presidential Address of the Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan--The Activities of the Society of Automotive Engineers and the Automobile Situation in Japan 871129

The Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan was established in the immediate aftermath of World War II. In the intervening 40 years, the SAE of Japan overcame numerous hurdles and grew to be one of the most important engineering organizations in the world with a membership of about 23,000.
The SAE of Japan is also active overseas, promoting interflow with countries around the world as a member of the IPC and FISITA and playing a role in international cooperation in automotive technology.
Japan still faces great difficulties in the form of trade frictions and the high value of the yen, and is trying its best to solve these problems.
New themes have emerged in the fields of electronics and new materials. The engineers must take up the challenge of this new technology in order to improve the performance of automobiles and build an affluent society while maintaining harmony between man and car.
It is hoped that this year's IPC will provide an opportunity for the participants from many countries to frankly exchange opinions and thus promote technical interflow
