MEMA, Japanese auto manufacturers reschedule meeting

The annual meeting between members of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association and representatives of the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association has been postponed until February or March of 2002.

The four-day meeting, originally slated to begin Sunday in Las Vegas, cultivates trade relations between U.S. parts manufacturers and Japanese automakers, MEMA President Chris Bates said.

MEMA spokesman Neal Zipser said both organizations agreed to reschedule the event due to safety and air travel concerns brought on by the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the United States.
