The 2001 Central Government Reform (中央省庁再編 Chūō Shōchō Saihen?) by the Japanese government involved the establishment of a new ministry, the merging of existing ministries and the abolition of others. This resulted in little more than a change of ministry names (with the exception of the Environment Agency which gained ministry status — a longtime goal).
