Gov. Inamine eyes Henoko as site for technical college

Date Posted: 1999-10-01

A meeting Monday between the Okinawa Prefectural Governor, Keiichi Inamine, Akihito Arima, minister of Education, Science and Culture, and Chief Cabinet Secretary Hiromu Nonaka, to discuss the construction in Henoko, Nago City of the proposed National Technical Junior College, proved beneficial, with the governor confident he can secure the construction of the first major junior technical college in the host city for the G8 Summit.

In meeting with each minister separately, Inamine also sought to push for telecommunication studies to play a major role in the college curriculum, saying the demand from established telecommunication companies for qualified personnel is increasing.

The decision to construct the college in Henoko was first mentioned late last week when Inamine said many similar colleges were located in the southern part of the island, and that its construction would aid the local economy. With most of the major colleges situated in or near Naha, many students from the northern region were being disadvantaged.

Both Arima and Nonaka said they were hopeful the college would be constructed in Henoko, adding that Inamine’s plan to push for telecommunications as a core unit of the college’s studies would hopefully receive a favorable response.
