Will Canon move world headquarters to Long Island?

Is Toyota a Japanese car maker or an American car maker or The Global Car Maker.

The story below might just be part of the negotiations for the money Canon got from New York State. But, this is the new normal. Only time will tell.

Canon exec to propose Melville as world headquarters
September 17, 2009
When Canon USA Inc. chief executive Joe Adachi travels to the company's worldwide headquarters for a meeting in Tokyo next month, he will propose that the giant imaging company relocate its world headquarters to Melville.

Adachi's plan came at a news conference earlier this week attended by Gov. David A. Paterson, who announced for at least the third time that Canon will remain on Long Island - at new digs in Melville.

"We have a worldwide meeting in Tokyo, and I'd like to try to bring world headquarters to Melville," said Adachi, who will meet with Canon chief executive Fujio Mitarai.

Adachi laughed when asked later whether such a move was a possibility.

"That is my dream," he said, citing his love of the United States. He noted that the economy in Japan is slow, and that the government there may raise taxes on corporations in the country.
