Keiretsu is a Japanese word for a grouping of enterprises with interlocking commercial relationships and shareholdings.  Keiretsu member companies have reciprocal share ownership and may also procure from each other to create reciprocal trading relationships.  There is some debate about whether keiretsu are as prevalent as they once were, although notable keiretsu such as Sumitomo and Mitsubishi still trade successfully, but with less emphasis on a closed supply chain ecosystem.  See also Chaebol.
