Japanese Central-local Government Relation

Professor Xiong Dayun from Yamanashi Gakuin University in Japan delivered a lecture themed Japanese Central-local Government Relation on the afternoon of March 9 at College of Economics and Management.

Professor Xiong explained Japanese central-local government relation from such two aspects as local autonomy and the control of the central government to local governments. Based on Japanese constitution relevant to the regulations on local autonomy, Professor Xiong introduced the specific rules including the classification of local autonomy, its composition which basically refers to resident autonomy and community autonomy, the local affairs implemented by prefectures and those unauthorized matters, local community parliaments and executive bodies.

He elaborated five means which Japanese central government has utilized to control local governments, including law-based autonomy, tax control, financial control, personnel containment and legal intervention. In addition, the national commission for local dispute resolution is set up to resolve conflicts between the central government and local governments.

It is because of these perfect control measures that Japan can maintain a reasonable relation between the central and local governments on the basis of a high degree of local autonomy.
