One of the latest technological exports that Japan is seeking for is of geothermal power technology. Japan is looking closely at countries that have capacity and plans for geothermal energy growth. Further Japan also looks forward to the possibility of exporting nuclear technology exports. It is reported that in the second half of the year 2010, Japan had initiated its coalition of nuclear technology exports with India on exceptional basis. As technology itself is limitless, the Japanese production and development in the field of technology is also infinite. Thereby, the exports of Japanese technology are extensive and immense.
