BMI View: Following the ascent of new leaders in Tokyo and Beijing in late 2012, Japan's security environment has grown tense, with both leaders keen to prove themselves. China's establishment of an Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) over disputed territory and Prime Minister Abe's visit to thecontroversial Yasukuni Shrine in late 2013 saw the greatest escalation of tensions in recent years. The Abe administration is increasingly proactive in addressing China's development, with ambitious goals of constitutional revision, including the April 2014 relaxation of a ban on defence exports. Perceived as excessive militarism by many, such moves will keep tensions with Beijing elevated.

In April 2014, the Abe government succeeded in revising constitutional restrictions on defence sector exports. We expect Q314 to see the first significant move within the new regulations when ShinMaywa signs a deal to sell 15 ShinMaywa US-2i Amphibious and Rescue (SAR) aircraft to India. The deal, expected when Prime Minister Modi visits Tokyo, will be worth USD1.65bn. The loosening on export restrictions will also allow Japan's defence companies to participate in some of the most technologically advanced joint ventures and to gain valuable expertise.
