This chapter examines the role of Japan and Korea in Central Asia. As large advanced economies, both countries certainly have the potential to be markets for Central Asian states as well as sources of imports, inward direct investment, foreign aid, and general foreign policy attention. However, neither country maintains a strong involvement in the region. The Central Asian nations are landlocked at considerable distance from either Japan or Korea, raising the cost of trade. Moreover, neither the Japanese nor the Korean governments appear to view Central Asia as a part of the world with which they have little in common or influence. Nonetheless, both countries have had an interest in Kazakh and Uzbek uranium, as well as Mongolia's potential as a raw material producer.

Keywords:   Japan, Korea, Central Asia, trade cost, Japanese government, Korean government, Kazakh uranium, Uzbek uranium, Mongolia
