Meeting demands extra steps to improve economy

Date Posted: 2001-11-21

The Prefectural Management Association and Okinawa Union organized a general meeting, Thursday at a hotel in Naha, aiming at coming up with ideas of breaking the current seriously depressed situation in employment and economy of Okinawa. About six hundred people took part in the event. The meeting was concluded with an appeal to the government requesting a prompt action and strong measures concerning the job situation and the damage to the local business stemming from the terror attack.

Both organizations are planning to make an appeal to the central government, national assembly and other organizations in Tokyo. The Chairman of the Okinawa Union, Yoshimasa Karimata pointed out that the special economic measures that Okinawa has enforced for the last three years are incomplete. He demanded that new steps be taken. He added that Okinawa was damaged specifically because the U.S. military bases are concentrated on the island. He demanded compensation as a matter of course as he said it is the government’s responsibility.
