According to Asahi, Yomiuri, and Mainichi, the Suga administration’s budget for Okinawa’s economic development in FY2022 will be about 299.8 billion yen ($2.73 billion). This will be the first time in 10 years for the amount to be below 300 billion yen. The GOJ promised in 2013 to then-Okinawa Governor Nakaima that the central government’s annual funding for the island economy would be over 300 billion yen through 2021 following Nakaima’s approval of landfill work for the FRF construction off Camp Schwab. While the amount reached as high as 350 billion yen in FY2014, it had been reduced almost every year since anti-base Governor Onaga was elected.
