[en] Worldwide energy demand in the past 20 years has changed as follows: it increased annually at a high rate by 5 to 6% from 1970 to 1973. But right after the first and second oil crisis, it remained at the same level and decreased respectively. However, it has been increasing since 1983. A rapid increase was seen on a petroleum cost slump in 1986. Especially in 1988, it increased by about 4%, reflecting the global economic expansion. In 1989, energy demand increase rate remained around 2% owing to the slow down of global economic growth. Though this rate was still low in 1990 as the economic growth was slowing down at that time, energy demand total has been increasing since 1983. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), further increases are expected in future, and 15 years later or in the year 2005, energy demand is expected to grow about 1.5 times larger than the present demand. A faster growth is expected compared with that of 1.3 times in the last 15 years

[en] In view of the situation where Japan has been increasingly expected to make a greater contribution to the international community through the supply of not only manufactured product but also of new technologies developed by herself, Ministries of International Trade and Industry; Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery; Health and Welfare; and Education have been coordinating varieties of biotechnology-related projects in co-operation with industries and academia. Through the Japanese biotechnology projects, many Japanese companies have achieved functioning systems in biotechnology, These systems combine many relevant component technologies and human connections in order to efficiently convert a scientific findings into a business. For this reason, it is to say that large part of the biotechnonogical activities of Japan derive from company institutions. Since this has been sometimes criticized for crippling biotechnological advances in the country, both Government and industries start to support to enhance biotechnological research activities in universities
