Japan Used Motor Vehicle Exporters Association
AutospEcs Ltd. is a member of JUMVEA Authorized
by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan.
In its present situation, the export of used Japanese vehicles has
been growing along with the export of new vehicles produced by Japanese
car manufacturers who boast the highest technological level among
automobile-producing nations. Based on the excellent quality and fair
prices of Japanese vehicles, used vehicle exports from Japan have
continued to increase over the past thirty years. Recently, the number
of exported vehicles exceeded 1 million. These vehicles are exported
to 180 countries around the world, including, two large markets such
as Russia and New Zealand. In the future, further increases of Japanese
used export are expected especially to the developing countries whose
economic foundation is now being established.
Meanwhile, however, amid the prolonged stagnation of the Japanese
economy, sluggish sales of new cars have been accompanied by a shortage
in the supply of quality used vehicles. And in addition to eased various
regulations with the implementation of the liberalization of trade,
the effects of the elimination of those regulations, and more stringent
competition due to an increase in the number of new exporters, there
has also been a sharp increase in illicit export, including the export
of stolen vehicles and illegally rebuilt or remodeled vehicles, resulting
in a breakdown of order in the export industry. With this situation
it caused a deterioration of the environment surrounding the export
of used motor vehicles industry which is resulting big social problems.
Amid such a situation, our association has continued to operate idealistically
to contribute to the sound distribution of used vehicles, endeavoring
to establish order in the export of used vehicles, improving the social
and economic standing of our members, trying to export the quality
vehicles, and, in order to satisfy the needs of customers in various
and numerous countries, strengthen our cooperative relations with
the Governments of nations (and related organizations) around the
world which import used motor vehicles.
Purpose of JUMVEA
Our association began on September 14, 1995 as the Japan Used Motor
Vehicle Exporters Alliance. On June 1, 1997, with the approval of
the Minister of International Trade and Industry, our association
was incorporated as the JAPAN USED
MOTOR VEHICLE EXPORTERS ASSOCIATION. The purpose of our association
is, with the cooperation of our members, to exchange information,
establish order of fair trade in the used motor vehicle export industry,
and endeavor toward the sound development of the used motor vehicle
export business - while also conducting joint-business activities
required by members, promoting economic activities for members, and
improving their social and economic standing.
The major reason of our establishment was the drastically eased regulations
regarding the export and the influence of the simplification of business,
which caused that it had become possible for anyone to easily engage
the export business, and the sharp increase in the number of exporters
of used motor vehicles. As a result there appeared more stringent
competition and a rapid increase in illegal exports, including the
export of stolen vehicles and illegally rebuilt or remodeled vehicles.
Preventing such illegal conduct and unfair export has become an urgent
task for the used motor vehicle export industry. Meanwhile, the demand
for used motor vehicles was expected to further increase in countries
around the world where, an economic foundation is in the process of
being established, because of the excellent quality and fair prices
of Japanese vehicles.
Amid such circumstances, the Cooperative Business Association was
established as an organization to better cope with the coming age.
Developing more profitable markets, ensuring the availability of products
for export, and rationalizing shipping, with Government assistance
it is the aim of this association to establish a sound international
market for used motor vehicle industry by strengthening cooperative
relations with the Governments of nations (and related organizations)
around the world which import used motor vehicles, establishing order
in the used motor vehicle export industry, and endeavoring to develop
