Okinawa-related spending in the Ministry of Defense request for the FY 2017 budget came to 178.089 billion yen, up 4.532 billion yen (2.6%) from the initial FY 2016 budget on an expenditure basis. Pushing up the total figure were increases in costs for the improvement of facilities provided [to the U.S. military] and in expenses for large-scale projects implemented at the request of municipalities to improve the environment surrounding the U.S. bases with an eye to enhancing local residents’ lives.
