This chapter reviews recent political developments, paying attention to the two regulatory sectors and setting out the implications of this research and the subsequent political development under the re-emergent LDP-led Coalition government. The chapter first reviews developments under the LDP’s Abe administration since 2012. This is followed by arguments drawn from the case studies. The chapter first argues that the reconstitution of the Japanese state is the key characteristic of regulation and governance in Japan. Second, it highlights the significance of three points – accountability, independent implementation and frequent rule changes in response to circumstantial changes – within regulatory development, and characterises the cases of Japan, the UK and New Zealand within this framework. The chapter then pulls these elements together and reveals the nature of governance in Japan, offering implications for practitioners.
