ABSTRACT
The article focuses on economic conditions in Japan and that country's foreign economic relations. A flat level of economic development since 1990 means that China will surpass Japan to become the world's second-largest economy sometime in 2009-2010. Proposals to revive economic growth are examined. The chances of cooperating with China to create a regional Asian economic bloc are discussed.
