In its top item on Monday, Yomiuri asserted that the Abe administration is aiming to shorten by six months to a year the time it will take to complete engineering work to reinforce the soft seabed off Camp Schwab by mobilizing as many workers, engineering platforms, and vessels as possible. The GOJ is reportedly hoping to complete the work in about 32 months instead of 44 months as initially planned. Although the GOJ is expected to draw up a new design for submission to the Okinawa prefectural government in the autumn in order to move forward with the work according to the new schedule, the daily suspected that Governor Tamaki is unlikely to approve such a change. The paper projected that the central government will file a lawsuit if the Okinawa leader rejects the design change.
