New graduate school to get budget from state coffers

Date Posted: 2003-06-22

A key government leader is reportedly in favor of the Central Government funding the new Okinawa Graduate School from a separate budget. Responding to a query from House of Representatives member Mikio Shimoji, Hiroyuki Hosoda, the State Minister in charge of Okinawa & Northern Territory Affairs, said the planned Okinawa Science & Technology School should be funded from a separate budget provided by the central government.

"The central government should decide on the policy for paying the construction and management of the new school. I am not supporting the idea of deducting the budget for the school from the Okinawa Development Budget and then allocating that money to the Graduate School. Instead, I would like to work with a broader view and get the central government to establish the budget," Hosoda said. Hosoda also indicated that the Cabinet Office alone should not be responsible for establishing the budget, but the government as a whole should assume the responsibility.

Hosoda's response is in obvious contrast to a view expressed by officials at the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology Agency, who reportedly favor establishing the budget within the Cabinet Office in order to excise greater influence on the school. "Establishing the budget within the Cabinet office allows us to respond appropriately to the needs of the school," a ministry official stated recently.
