Governor leaved for U.S.

Date Posted: 2001-05-18

Governor Keiichi Inamine left for the U.S. Sunday, mainly in order to urge a reduction of U.S. forces stationed in Okinawa, and to discuss the demanded 15-year limit for the use of the MCAS Futenma’s relocation facility.

The governor is scheduled to meet with top government officials including U.S. Deputy Secretary of State, Richard Armitage, Tuesday, in Washington DC. He is also scheduled to have discussions with military and Department of Defense officials on Wednesday. On May 17 and 18, he will hold talks with academics; attend a public meeting and lecture. He will continue to New York on the 19th to visit four corporations related to finance and IT industry in order to make a pitch for them to set up a shop in Okinawa. He is also planning to meet with a group of Okinawan emigrants to extend them a call for participation to the Worldwide Uchinanchu Festival in November. He will then fly to Hawaii on the 24th to meet U.S. Navy Pacific Commander, Dennis Blair. He is scheduled to be back to Okinawa on the 26th.
