Japan’s Silk Road Diplomacy

With tfotoLucahe collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1991 Central Asian nations and Japan, established diplomatic relations and partnership began to increase steadily as manifested by the level of official contacts. In 1997, the “Silk Road” Diplomacy concept was formulated for Japan’s policy toward Central Asia.

In the beginning of 21st century, we see activation of new actors including India, Korea and Japan in Central Asia, which were mainly welcomed in the region. Tokyo recognized the growing strategic importance of Central Asia in the context of international security and sought to play a more active role as an Asian nation in Eurasia.

During two decades Central Asian nations and Japan, partnership began to increase steadily. Japan is one of the largest assistants to Central Asia in structural reforms and Japanese investments to the different aspects of region economy and transport communication add up to several billions.

There are several areas of special interest to Japan in its relations with Central Asia, including cooperation in education, economic development of the region, political reforms, as well as energy resources. Japan’s effort in creating the “Central Asia plus Japan” dialog is part of its multilateral diplomacy.

Japan has few natural resources and depends on massive imports of raw materials. It must export to pay for its imports, and manufacturing and the sales of its services, such as banking and finance, were its principal means of doing so.

The successful model of Japan in promoting its competitive system in the areas of higher economic potential is due to three main components: government’s administrative guidance, trading companies, and official development aid.

The export of infrastructure systems as Japan’s foreign economic policy is unique in terms of diplomatic goals and means. We will discuss about Japan’s Silk Road Diplomacy focussing on Central Asia policy application.

Israele, l’impossibile sogno di normalità

Sul porto di Haifa Il sogno di Erertz Israel ti cattura ancora. Perché in nessuna parte del mondo il mare ha quel colore, in nessuna parte del mondo il cielo assume quel blu così intenso. Per ogni ebreo, che tocchi questa Terra, per la prima o per la quarantesima volta, questi sono i colori di una libertà e di un’identità ritrovata, ma anche di una ferita, mai completamente rimarginata, che si nutre di alterità.

Già se atterri all’aeroporto Ben Gurion di Tel Aviv, l’atmosfera è diversa: un giovane soldato, col volto da bambino e il mitra troppo pesante, ti squadra con l’indolenza supponente di chi conosce il suo compito e sa di dover resistere in una guerra che tu ancora non comprendi. Non puoi farti nessun selfie e la telecamera deve rimanere rigorosamente in borsa, Se non vuoi essere circondato all’istante.

C’è un giovane arabo sospetto.
