Science and Technology Basic Plan
  The Science and Technology Basic plan is drawn up based on the Science and Technology Basic Law every five year in Japan. There are two steps to draw up the basic plan. First, Council for Science and Technology Policy (CSTP) deliberates the basic policy about science and technology. Second, based on that, the government formulates and decides a basic plan.
  The current basic plan is the 2nd one and the next plan (the 3rd plan) will be finalized by the end of FY 2005 (March 2006) and will begin from FY2006 (April, 2006).
