Committee urges more gov. aid for Okinawa

Date Posted: 2001-08-16

The Liberal Democratic Party Okinawa Development Committee held a meeting in Tokyo, Friday, and filed a report on measurements for the development of Okinawa. In its report, the committee demands the national government to let Okinawa Prefecture freely use a budget worth about 50 billion as a special measure. That amounts to about 15 percent of the total of the national budget earmarked for Okinawa.

Additionally, Committee Chairman Komu Nonaka suggested three new plans for the further development of tourism in Okinawa. One is to reduce the landing fees at Naha Airport. The second is to organize sanatorium facilities for long term stays. The third is a casino gaming plan. He also said Okinawa has still many tasks to complete, and thus more cooperation from the national government is needed.
