Okinawa Times and Ryukyu Shimpo reported that during a Joint Committee meeting scheduled for Friday, the USG and the GOJ are set to formulate a master plan on the details of the agreed-upon relocation of warehouses and other structures to Camp Hansen from Camp Foster and Camp Kinser. Some 100 facilities will be newly built on Camp Hansen to host the warehouse functions currently performed by the two other installations.

 

In a related story, Ryukyu Shimpo wrote that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga is likely to attend in Naha City on May 20 a ceremony marking the return of a portion of Camp Kinser.  The government spokesman is also reportedly expected to meet with newly elected Nago Mayor Toguchi and other municipal leaders in northern Okinawa the day before the ceremony apparently in a bid to highlight the central government’s commitment to revitalizing the northern part of the island prefecture.
