Trilatèrale coopération Japon, Chine, Corée : Le ministre d'Etat du Japon, M. Nakan, exprime sa satisfaction sur cette trilatèrale coopération qui permet d'établir un véritable dialogue entre les trois pays.

Japan - USA:  Japan and the United States are strong allies sharing basic values and strategic interests, with the Japan-U.S. Security Arrangements at the core. Under such a strong alliance, both countries are closely working together and sharing roles and responsibilities not only on bilateral issues, but on regional issues in the Asia-Pacific and global issues as well. Trade with Japan (2013): Exports to U.S.: 1.413 billion dollars (excluding service trade) (Automobile, Automobile parts, Motor, Computer parts) - Imports from U.S.: 66.5 billion dollars (excluding service trade) (Aircraft products, Medical supplies, Scientific and optical instruments, Cereals) - Direct Investment Position (2013): Japan's Direct Investment to U.S.: 34.9 trillion yen (End of 2013 Asset balance). Direct Investment from U.S. to Japan: 5.5 trillion yen (End of 2013 Asset balance)

Japan - EU:   The trade relationships between the EU and Japan have usually been characterised by big trade surpluses in favour of Japan. Trade figures have recently become more balanced, but Japan continues to be a country where doing business or investing is often challenging due to the features of the Japanese society and economy.To make the trade relationships between the EU and Japan easier, some informal bilateral dialogues have been established.

Japan – Least Development Countries: Japan made approximately 900.000 USD (equivalent to approximately 100 million yen) contribution to the Least Development Countries Fund (LDCF).

ECONOMY - FINANCE

Abenomics keeps boosting Japan’s economy: Rigorously implement comprehensive reforms to achieve sustainable growth and reach a nominal GDP of 600 trillion yen.  The early passage of the budget for the coming fiscal year is itself the most important stimulus to the economy. In this year’s ‘spring offensive (spring wage negotiations),’ many companies raised their pay scales and many of them increased their wages more significantly compared with last year. Under such circumstances, we will swiftly execute this budget so that the warm winds of economic recovery can reach small businesses, small- and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), and each region. This ‘Work Style Diet.’ will to make Japan a country that offers an ideal work environment for all the people, no matter what circumstances they face. 

INDUSTRY - RESEARCH

Nuclear, Disarmament and Non-Proliferation: As the only country to have suffered atomic bombings, Japan has been leading the international discussion on disarmament and non-proliferation. Japan has been promoting real change by calling on all nuclear weapon states to take measures toward nuclear disarmament while increasing transparency in military armaments. Minister Kishida said: "There are various countries in the world with different ideas with regard to nuclear disarmament and nonproliferation. However, as I have explained before, a clear understanding of the humanitarian consequences of the use of nuclear weapons and an objective assessment of the severe security environment are two important elements. I believe that correct understanding of these two aspects will lead us to cooperation between nuclear-weapon States and non-nuclear-weapon States. Believing that it is impossible to achieve concrete results or outcomes without cooperation between nuclear-weapon States and non-nuclear-weapon States, Japan continues to encourage the international community to cooperate, based on the Hiroshima Declaration, which was agreed by both nuclear-weapon States and non-nuclear-weapon States, and through the Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Initiative (NPDI), which is a framework of non-nuclear-weapon States".
