Governor Schwarzenegger is so beloved in Japan, its own leader has noted that he´s “even more popular” than President Bush.
Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi made the observationduring a meeting with Schwarzenegger today in Tokyo.
They discussed Japanese high-tech goods, California farm products and environmentally friendly policies.
Although the governor has been greeted by Japanese movie fans everywhere in Tokyo, he has stressed that his mission is to promote trade and tourism in California — not his films.
But many Japanese businesses believe that California is too expensive for their operations because of the state´s high taxes and worker salaries.
