Yomiuri reported on the enactment on Thursday of a revised special measures act on economic rejuvenation in Okinawa, explaining that the legislation is aimed at renewing the central government’s commitment to economic development of the island prefecture through 2032. “The passage marks a fresh start for Okinawa’s economic promotion,” said Chief Cabinet Secretary Matsuno. “The central government will move forward comprehensively and proactively to realize a strong Okinawa economy.” The paper said both the central and prefectural governments must come up with measures to sustain Okinawa’s economic growth, which has thus far depended disproportionately on tourism and public work projects.
