This chapter aims to make a general historic survey of economic development and industrialization in the Latin American region. However, Japanese enterprises also made inroads into this field of industry from around the s and s.

The main purpose of this chapter is to clarify the transfer of the Japanese production system into the two plants in Brazil and Argentina, based on field research. After that I evaluate the transferability of the system in South America.
