Abstract and Keywords

This article first reviews major explanations of the Japanese business–government model. Where it departs from general treatment of participation of business interests, it especially focuses on large Japanese multinational firms' lobbying strategies within the policy-making process. Then, in order to highlight the nature of the Japanese business–government model, the pattern of Japanese business lobbying is explained in detail, with special attention to firms' preferences for collective lobbying through their business associations and their lobbying instruments. In addition, the article refers to the development of Japanese business interests in the US and Europe, and points out the enduring national business culture among Japanese firms in the age of globalization.

Keywords: business–government relations, business interests, Japanese multinational firms, policy-making process, business lobbying, business associations
