Global Powers in the 21st Century

This chapter finds that Japan has been unable to emerge as a global leader despite being backed by significant economic prosperity and military strength, but has been able to use its external environment to highlight its national interests. Japan has successfully accessed foreign raw materials and supplied its products in international markets despite being unable to influence international global institutions and systems, and has also attracted investments into the domestic economy, and maintains cordial relationships with other countries, including the United States. It has satisfied its own needs by following the policy of limited international agenda and non-interference in the matters of others.

Keywords:   Japan, economic prosperity, global leader, global institutions, domestic economy
