Towards a New Agenda for Japanese Telecommunications

Martin Fransman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In an earlier issue of this journal on the future of Japanese telecommunications the author argued that, while the current debate in Japan has focused almost exclusively on whether or not NTT should be divested, a more important question is how to ensure the establishment of competitive conditions in the various markets for telecoms services, including local access. This article takes this argument further by suggesting that in formulating an agenda for the future of Japanese telecommunications it is essential to distinguish between a number of crucial short run and long run issues.
