SELENE-2 is not developed yet.
I think NET 2014.

Thanks Fuji! So we will keep the schedule as it was...

The UNIFORM consortium aims at initially launching groups of 50-kilogram-class satellites in pairs or clusters in 2012 and 2014 to build a constellation capable of frequent revisits for Earth observation or atmospheric monitoring missions

QZS-2 and QZS-3 are not budgeted yet.
So, launch schedule is TBD.

TOPS is gone. It became Sprint-A/Exceed for launch in 2013.  Sprint-B/Erg will be launched in 2014.

In 2017 Japan will launch a Vietnamese earth observation satellite. Japan will also pay and build the satellite. Vietnam will be build a second one.

What about the Mongolian earth observation satellite? Is there any fixed date about the launch?

TECHNOLOGY -Turkey to launch two satellites in next three years

Turkey plans to launch two more communication satellites by 2014, Turkey's transportation minister said on Monday.

   Turkey signed a $571 million deal with Japanese technology firm Mitsubishi Electric MELCO to procure and launch Turksat 4A and Turksat 4B.

   Speaking at the signing ceremony, Transportation Minister Binali Yildirim said that Turkey also started efforts for production of another satellite, Turksat 5A, by Turkish engineers in a strategic cooperation with the Japanese firm.

   Currently, Turkey operates two communication satellites, Turksat 2A and Turksat 3A. Last year, another Turkish satellite Turksat 1C had "retired" 14 years after it was launched into space.

   Yildirim said Turkey decided to launch new satellites due to rising demand and capacity in Turksat, Turkey's satellite operator. Yildirim said new satellites would help increase Turkey's satellite capacity by three fold.

   Yildirim added that the deal would also set the ground for a cooperation between Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Turkish Space Agency, which is expected to be established next year.

   Turksat 4A and Turksat 4B will have a lifespan of 30 years. Turkey plans to place Turksat 4A into orbit by the last quarter of 2013. Turksat 4B will be launched in 2014.

   Turkey also has plans to launch its first intelligence satellite next year. The spy satellite was named "Gokturk" and it is now under construction by Turkish engineers.

I wonder if MELCO's DS2000 standard comsat platform structually fits in H-2A or H-2B.

Certainly it does: MTSat-2 and QZS (Michibiki) were launched on H-2A, as well as the Kodama and ETS-8 (Kiku-8) prototypes.

If it is correct that MHI can produce 5 H-IIA/Bs during on fiscal year than 2014 is already full.
2014: Hayabusa 2
IGS Optical + Radar
HTV
GCOM-C +(Alos 3?)
Himawari 8

Maybe double launch Himawari 8 + Turksat 4B would have been possible. However exchange rates do not favor a Japanese launch

Yes, you are right

In the middle term, the appriciation of Yen will not help MHI to compete with others and enter in the commercial launch market, unless any Japanese Government Agency's financial support just as same as Arianespace or ILS receives.
