JAPAN

68 per cent of Japan's commitments were left inactive, despite the majority of them being neither new nor ambitious

Japan has not made any particular effort around asset recovery, as both of its commitments remain inactive. On this issue, Japan had pledged to ensure that domestic legislation allows for swift identification, tracing, confiscation and return of assets following execution of a confiscation judgement issued by another jurisdiction, and to promote regional interagency asset recovery networks for efficient asset recovery.

Japan makes all public procurement contracts public, except minor contracts. However, the number of these that are available in machine-readable format is still small. Two of Japan’s commitments around sports governance are ongoing, although neither of these were new commitments.
