The government launched a secretariat for the promotion of ocean policy on April 3 in the Cabinet Office, following the enforcement of a special law on April 1 which stipulates the provision of 5 billion yen to inhabited remote islands located along the national border. The Cabinet Secretariat was home to the Headquarters for Ocean Policy, but the new organization is authorized to take budgetary measures and so was transferred to the Cabinet Office.
