Global Narratives: Japan
By Michael Barber, Toshi Nabeta and Aaron Lin
Until 2012, the Japanese defense budget had experienced negative growth for a decade, but since the start of Prime Minister Abe’s second administration, defense spending has seen consistent growth with the defense budget of FY2018 expected to reach an all-time high. As Japan’s threat environment grows more pronounced leading to a renewed focus on R&D, Michael Barber interviews Toshi Nabeta and Aaron Lin and what opportunities this presents for the defense industry and foreign governments poised for cooperation.
