On Sept. 12, Minister of State for Okinawa and Northern Territories Affairs Kono Taro, a candidate for LDP president, joined an online event hosted by Lower House member Miyazaki Masahisa from his office in Urasoe City. He received questions from local participants about such issues as healthcare and tourism. To a question asking about the continuation of the Okinawa Development Finance Corporation, Kono answered that “we must consider retaining the organization for the time being if it is needed.” He also noted: “I aim to steadily raise Okinawa’s per capita income. Okinawa has the potential. I will work toward the development of Okinawa.”
