All national dailies reported on Saturday that a Defense Ministry taskforce of eight civil engineers and academics convened its first meeting on the planned modification of the design of the Futenma replacement facility, which is necessary to accommodate extensive engineering work to reinforce the soft seabed in the vicinity. The panel members are expected to offer technical advice on the development of a new design so as to enable the ministry to submit by year’s end a request for a permit for the design change to the Okinawa governor, who is strongly opposed to the base realignment initiative.
