  1. The Councilor's Office on External Affairs of the Prime Minister's Office researched the entities of "Measures Related to Japanese Public Sector Procurements of Computer Products and Services". As a result, the procurements rate of foreign computer products was 22.4% (16.5% including Services) in FY1997.
    From FY1993 to FY1995, the procurements rate of foreign products showed a tendency to increase as follows; 27.9% (23.3% including Services) in FY1993, 29.3% (24.2% including Services) in FY1994, and 29.0% (25.2% including Services) in FY1995. While the procurement rate decreased to 19.6% (15.9% including Services) in FY1996, it again increased to 22.4%(16.5% including Services) in FY1997.

  2. As for computer products and services, the Japanese public sector procures them in a transparent and fair process, with non-discrimination and open opportunities based on the "Measures Related to Japanese Public Sector Procurements of Computer Products and Services" and the "Procedures for Government Procurement on Products" which was decided in 1994.
    We expect that foreign companies are able to use the opportunities, and we steadily enforce the transparent procurements based on these measures and procedures as before.
