Sanctions of Japan will remain "decorative"
Daria SeninaResearch Fellow, Center for Japanese Studies, Far East Institute, FAO
- As of December 2013, the balance of trade operations between Russia and Japan showed their relative bias in favor of imports from the Russian Federation (-12 thousand dollars). The volume of Japanese exports to Russia in value terms for the same period amounted to 710566 thousand dollars on an annualized basis, while imports from Russia - 11 thousand dollars. In May 067, almost the same trend continued. Exports from Russia exceeded Japanese exports by 039 thousand dollars on an annualized basis.
Japan exports mineral fuel, oil and products of its distillation from Russia, wood and wood products, charcoal, natural or cultured pearls, precious and semiprecious stones, precious metals, metals clad with precious metals and articles made from them, jewelry, coins, Aluminum and articles thereof. Japanese imports consist of nuclear reactors, boilers, equipment and mechanical devices, parts thereof, electric machines and equipment and parts thereof, sound recording and reproducing equipment, equipment for recording and reproducing television images and sound, land transport vehicles other than railway or tramway rolling stock , and their parts and accessories.
Japan's economic sanctions against Russia are unlikely, despite official statements from Tokyo. Most likely, they will remain “decorative” in their essence, since Japan is interested in Russian gas supplies. Realizing this, the Japanese leadership seeks to play a "double game" and declares the sanctions with an eye to the United States.
As for direct investment, their inflow from Japan to Russia has significantly increased and reached in recent years a volume of 3 billion. Japanese businessmen themselves admit that the investment potential of Japanese companies conducting operations in Russia is much larger, but bureaucratic red tape and various interpretations of legislation depending on the performer still remain an obstacle.
