Video titled "The Next Step - Towards Fukushima's Future, Together" to be Produced To Convey the Current Situation of Efforts for Reconstructing Fukushima

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has prepared a PR video titled "The Next Step - Towards Fukushima's Future, Together" and preleased it on YouTube METI-Channel on March 1, 2018. The video aims to convey to the public the current situation of reconstruction of Fukushima Prefecture, devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake and the accident at the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, in particular, concerning 12 municipalities severely devastated, namely Iidate Village, Okuma Town, Katsurao Village, Kawauchi Village, Kawamata Town, Tamura City, Tomioka Town, Namie Town, Naraha Town, Hirono Town, Futaba Town, and Minamisoma City.

1. Outline and purpose of the video

On March 11, 2011, the Great East Earthquake and the accident at the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station occurred. After that, Japan has been accelerating a variety of efforts to reconstruct these devastated areas in Fukushima Prefecture, including lifting of the evacuation orders, reconstruction of businesses and livelihood, and promotion of the Fukushima Innovation Coast Scheme. Moreover, it has also been securing the implementation of efforts for removing negative effects on products in local communities due to harmful reputations.

Through releasing the movie, METI will strive to convey the current situation of reconstruction of Fukushima as well as efforts for inviting new industries to the prefecture and removing such negative effects to a broad range of people inside and outside Japan, thereby promoting public understanding of Fukushima.

2. Details of the video and other information

The well-organized video will explain the current situation of Fukushima, mainly about the 12 municipalities, including footage of a ceremony for lifting the evacuation orders in the spring of 2016 and other events, as well as Japan's efforts for reconstructing people's everyday lives, businesses and livelihood, and the promotion of the Fukushima Innovation Coast Scheme.
