TOKYO -- Japan is set to review its academic guidelines to prevent leaks of advanced U.S. technologies when universities conduct research with China as well as other countries.

A growing number of Japanese schools are partnering with universities and companies in the U.S., China and elsewhere. Washington intends to impose tight restrictions on the disclosure of advanced technology originating in the U.S. to third countries, and Japan's trade ministry has determined that additional measures will be needed to ensure compliance.
