Defense Burdensharing: Is Japan's Host Nation Support a Model for Other Allies?

Description:

Under an agreement announced in January 1991, the Government of
Japan committed itself to increase substantially the amount of
support that it provides for U.S. military forces based there.
Among other things, Japan agreed by 1995 to absorb 100 percent of
the cost of Japanese nationals employed at U.S. military
facilities and to pay for all utilities supplied to U.S. bases,
to increase the amount of military and family housing
construction that it is providing to support U.S. forces, to
continue to provide facilities at no charge to the United States
and to waive taxes and fees that might otherwise apply to U.S.
activities.
