Hokkaido municipalities to propose joint economic activities for disputed isles

Saturday morning’s Mainichi reported that five municipalities in Hokkaido, including Nemuro, have put together a plan to submit to the GOJ for the proposed “joint economic activities” on the Northern Territories. They will ask the central government to grant them “special economic zone” status so that their communities can participate in a range of economic activities with Russians on the islands in such fields as tourism, medicine, and seafood processing.
