Japan Govt Wants Businesses, Skilled Workers in Disaster Areas, jiji press, 7/27/13

Tokyo, July 27 (Jiji Press)–Japan needs to put highly skilled and educated workers into areas hit by last year’s earthquake and tsunami to speed their reconstruction, the government said in an annual report Friday.
These areas in Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, northern Japan, also need concentration of businesses, the white paper on the country’s economy and public finances said.
The report said that municipalities with many businesses have high productivity while added value is high in prefectures with many skilled workers.
The three prefectures have seen production, employment and consumption recovering to levels before the March 2011 disaster, but tsunami-hit coastal areas lag behind in the recovery, the report said.
The country needs to take steps such as cooperation between industries and educational institutions to help put businesses and human resources into disaster areas intensively, the report said.
