This book moves away from the common belief that Japana€™s international relations are firmly the preserve of the national government in Japana€™s highly centralised political system. Examining examples of subnational governments (SNGs) across Japan the book uncovers a significant and generally unrecognised development in Japanese politics: SNGs are ever more dynamic international actors as national borders a€˜weakena€™ across the world. Exploring what Japanese SNGs do, where they do it, and why, the book considers the implications of these factors for Japana€™s international relations and domestic politics. By bringing to light the scope and consequences of the international actions of Japana€™s SNGs, this book provides a more accurate and nuanced understanding of the country's foreign policy, at a time when it is pursuing a broader and more active profile in international affairs.The German firm Fresenius, the worldsa#39; number one in the field of dialysis, set up in Fukuoka Prefecture in 2000 after Governor Aso Watarua#39;s direct ... lobbying and strengths in advanced engineering, environmental regulations, capable public service and a history of strong local leadership. ...
