Wednesday morning’s Mainichi wrote that the Abe administration is likely to earmark over 300 billion yen for economic development of Okinawa in the FY2019 budget, almost the same level as this fiscal year. The central government’s economic development budget for the island prefecture has been reduced in the past several years because of former Governor Onaga’s opposition to the FRF project. According to the daily, the administration is inclined not to reduce it any further in order to prevent Okinawa’s opposition to the central government from escalating as the FRF construction work off Camp Schwab is expected to pick up speed next year.
