Nikkei reported that when filing a budget request for FY2022, the Defense Ministry is likely to request a considerable increase in expenditures in such areas as the defense of Okinawa and the Nansei Islands, outer space, cyberspace, and electromagnetic waves, in the face of China’s rapid military buildup and increased pressure on Taiwan. The ministry considers a steady increase in defense budget to be critical to enhancing deterrence against China in coordination with the U.S. military.
