The use of robots in primary industries of agriculture and fisheries and utilis ation of data in dairy farming is proof that the agriculture industry is making changes in the way it operates - a long- awaited development for the traditionally old-fashioned and less progressive industry.

The Japanese government has launched a series of initiatives to support technological advancements in the agriculture industry, including an investment of USD10mn in robots aimed at reducing farming workloads and investments into cloud-based agriculture technologies, such as wearable devices and peripherals for monitoring livestock.

On the political front, the government's plan to diminish the influence of the once-powerful Central Union Agricultural Cooperative (JA-Zenchu) is a strong indication that much-needed structural reform of the agriculture industry is under way. By 2019, the JA Zenchu is expected to become a general incorporated association with co-ops having the option of engaging independent auditors instead of working with those associated with JA Zenchu. By reducing the power of the union, the government is sending out a clear sign that it is serious about the reforms, as further reflected in the increased openness towards a compromise for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
