Japan’s nuclear power: structure, problems and future

Dayana Ivanova, East, South, Southeast Asian Studies,  Sofia University ‘St. Kliment Ohridski’ – Centre for Eastern Languages and Studies

Abstract:Until the 1950s only hydro- and thermal electric power stations were known across the globe; these require an abundance of water and fossil fuel sources – two key components for the production of electric power which are something that Japan definitely lacks sufficient quantities of. All this is of enormous detriment to Japan, which has been entirely dependent on import, a fact that continues to put a lot of strain on the country’s economy to this day. The advent of the nuclear generator is precisely the innovation in science and technology that Japan needs to solve its energy dependency issues. The turning point, however, in this part of Japan’s development were the tragic events of the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster in 2011, which have made the country rethink its course of action. The purpose of the following paper is to shortly represent the structure of the Japanese nuclear power industry, consequences following the current energy crisis and strongly affecting the country’s economy, and what the eventual prospects and solutions for this major issue are.

Keywords:nuclear power, Japan, electric power stations, Fukushima, energy crisis

East Asia in Central Asia: interests and strategies

Boryana Miteva, PhD, Assistant Professor at Department „Modern and Contemporary common history“ Faculty of History, Sofia University „St. Kliment Ohridski „

Abstract:As a part of Eurasia, the region of Central Asia is of great importance to the East Asian countries. Therefore, the PRC, Japan and the Republic of Korea formulated specific strategies toward Central Asia in order to realize their priorities. Geographical proximity to Central Asia is a determinative factor for the PRC to dominate the region. Interests of Beijing are related with national security of some border areas and with Xinjiang area in particular, and expansion of the economic and the energetic cooperation with the Central Asian countries. Discussing regional problems in the framework of SCO and including Central Asia in the PRC’s strategy “One road, one belt” are significant for realizing the PRC’s interests in Central Asia. Although the region of Central Asia is not that high priority for Japan and the Republic of Korea, as for the PRC, Tokyo and Seul also have their interests toward Central Asia, related with the security in Eurasia, economic and energetic cooperation. The importance of Central Asia for Tokyo and Seul is evident with a view to the cooperation within “Central Asia+Japan” and “the Republic of Korea and Central Asia”.

Chief assistant PhD Anton KostadinovDepartment of international economics, Institute for economic research, BAS

Abstract:Nowadays China is the biggest trading partner for many countries. China is second biggest trade partner for European union as well. Trade volume between these two major subjects in global economy is constantly growing. EU is traditional food producer and exporter. During political tensions with Russia and trade embargo EU is forced to develop export destinations as China is. Bulgaria is a member state of EU since 2007 and that made significant changes in Bulgaria’s foreign trade. Furthermore, over 60% of Bulgaria’s export is designated to EU. Bulgaria is also traditional food producer and farmers in the country can benefit from both: EU subsidies and close location to ports under China’s concession – Piraeus in Greece. Moreover, China desperately deeds high quality foods for its population. There are two main factors forcing China to develop food trade: urbanization and environmental pollution. By now China is experiencing biggest mass movement if world’s history, country is facing unprecedented urbanization. The last 35 years of economic development in China were crucial. China sacrificed its environment instead of economic growth. The price now country has to pay for that pollution is unforeseen and the consequences are heavy.

At the same time incomes of China’s population is growing and the demand for healthy and for more food is growing. Therefore, providing population with adequate food is concerning country’s national security.

Изтокът гостува на Запада или как България може да привлече китайски туристи


Сякаш повече сме свикнали да говорим за Запада като завоевател, откривател и гост на далечни народи, отколкото да приписваме подобни качества на Далечния Изток. Светът обаче се променя и е ред на Изтока да направи своите „завоевания“. „Старият“ запад все повече изостава в съревнованието с „новия“ бързоразвиващ се Изток. Но разликата идва и от другаде – този път завоевателите не са нежелани гости, а напротив – те са тези, които западната част от света очаква с нетърпение.  Китай блести в златни багри и далеч не става въпрос за традиционни цветове. Поднебесната империя произвежда всичко за всеки, инвестира, определя насоки. Някои дори я определят за създателката на Новия световен ред. Ако парафразираме Конфуций – това не е нищо ново, а позабравено старо. Китай през годините не един път е доказвал своята значимост за света, и не един път е определял насоките.
