BMI View: Japan finds itself at a crossroads, following the election of Shinzo Abe in late 2012. Abe’s ambitious plans for national revival are designed to kick-start the national economy, and also to make the country more assertive on security issues. In particular, Tokyo is concerned about perceived Chinese aggression, and hawks like Abe want Japan to stand up to Chinese pressure and protect the country’s sovereignty. However, it remains to be seen whether Abe can actually deliver the more assertive Japan that he wants, and much will probably depend on whether he can restore growth to the economy. If he succeeds, he will have the funds, and also the political capital, to pursue the other aspects of his programme.

Abe has taken a more hawkish view on security issues than his recent predecessors, and he has taken office with some ambitious plans to update the country’s military and its pacifist constitution. He also announced within weeks of taking office that he was reversing defence cuts planned for 2013 and would instead increase the defence budget, for the first time in over a decade.
