Research and development are important to the Japanese economy. As its economy matured in the 1970s and 1980s, Japan gradually shifted away from dependence on foreign research. Japan's ability to conduct independent research and development became a decisive factor in boosting the nation's competitiveness. As early as 1980, the Science and Technology Agency, a component of the Kantei (office of the Prime Minister) announced the beginning of "the era of Japan's technological independence. Today, after two decades of economic stagnation, Japan's vitality and dynamism is almost palpable. As part of the government’s revitalization strategy, the country has set its sights on strengthening efforts in research and development, improving health technology and services, and elevating the status of its universities as well as reaching out globally for knowledge sharing and talent circulation. Science and technology research has been a reliable pillar of the Japanese economy. The steadily increasing national research budget acknowledges the importance of research and development (R&D) for the country as well as its role in finding solutions to Japan's urban, environmental, and economic challenges.
