Naichō (内調, an abbreviation for Naikaku Jōhō Chōsashitsu , Cabinet Intelligence and Research Office) is the premier intelligence agency of Japan, reporting directly to the Prime Minister. The agency is said to be an equal to the American Central Intelligence Agency.[1] However, it is often criticized as being rather ineffectual, spending most of its energy translating foreign publications rather than gathering any substantial intelligence[2] while being accused of spying on Japanese nationals on domestic soi,Role

Most of the information obtained by Naicho is based from news agencies and intelligence supplied to them by friendly nations.[1]
[edit] Organization

The total staff of Naicho is around 170[3] to 175, with 120 on loan from other agencies and ministries.[1] In addition, most of the personnel are from the Japanese National Police Agency.[1]

The "Seven Sisters" was a term coined in the 1950s by Italian businessman Enrico Mattei to describe the seven oil companies which formed the "Consortium for Iran" and dominated the global petroleum industry from the mid-1940s to the 1970s.[1][2] The group comprised Standard Oil of New Jersey and Standard Oil Company of New York (now ExxonMobil); Standard Oil of California, Gulf Oil and Texaco (now Chevron); Royal Dutch Shell; and Anglo-Persian Oil Company (now BP).

In 1973 the members of the Seven Sisters controlled 85% of the world's petroleum reserves but in recent decades the dominance of them and their successor companies has been challenged by the increasing influence of the OPEC cartel and of state-owned oil companies in emerging-market economies.[1][3]

There is a proposal being called on to reorganize the agency in order for it to be on equals with the CIA, with the integration of officials from the Foreign Ministry, the National Police Agency, Defense Agency as well as private sector.[4]
[edit] Spy scandal

On January 17, 2008, an official of Naichō was charged for spying for Russians, passing them classified information. The Russians denied the claim.[5] Since then, there had been calls for greater accountability on Naicho.[6]
