Japan’s most recent national defense and security strategies and the associated Defense Buildup Plan signal a major realignment in Japan’s defense posture. The Government of Japan has committed to significant investments in defense equipment, infrastructure, and R&D in emerging technologies such as drones and space surveillance.

Simultaneously, Japan is raising the importance of economic security, which requires close cooperation with private industry, the implementation of a robust system of security clearance and the necessary cyber security infrastructure to both manage and protect sensitive data.

GR Japan has built close relations over many years with the government and legislative actors responsible for shaping and defining Japan’s defense and security policy. We have a strong team of professionals with a defense and security background, as well as rich experience working in emerging technologies. We understand the sensitive nature of the sector and our clients’ need for discretion.
