Message from the Governor

Ryuta Ibaragi

Greetings. My name is Ryuta Ibaragi, Governor of Okayama.

 

Until now, I have engaged wholeheartedly with the Okayama Government based on the conviction that education reform and the promotion of industry are keys to the development of Okayama Prefecture. The seeds sown have now begun to sprout not only in education reform and industry promotion, but also in medical and health care, welfare, childcare, disaster prevention, the revitalization of hilly and mountainous regions, and in various other fields. It is at this exact moment that effectual progress for Okayama Prefecture will begin to accelerate.

 

To ensure and to further deepen this growth, I will strengthen the government. Together we will take on various challenges, starting with issues like the declining population. Through the concrete results, the citizens of Okayama will feel proud of living here and will see the effectual progress taking place.

 

This is a reflection of my vision for Okayama within the “New Land of Sunshine Iki-Iki plan”, and will commence from this year. I will also work on other important strategic projects like restoring Okayama as the educational prefecture, regional support through industry development, creating a reliable and vibrant prefecture, and the promotional development of Okayama cooperation project. The promotional development of Okayama cooperation project will propel these ideas, bringing municipal cities together to cooperate and resolve regional issues.

 

This year, marks the first year for this new plan. To achieve this goal, I will start with the guideline from the Iki-iki plan. I will base our efforts on the achievements thus far, to take that step forward, and drive those 3 strategic projects ahead.

 

The government’s fundamental goal, “Iki-iki Okayama”, is for everyone to be iki-iki (lively) and well. This also represents my driving force for the citizens to be filled with energy and expectations, and to live on in Okayama with a bright smile. The new plan is a compass for the government, to bring in all involved to implement Iki-iki Okayama. Together with customer focus, cost-conscious and speed, I will carry out efficient and effective financial operations, continuously striving for innovation and improvement.

 

I ask for your understanding and cooperation, along with your full support.
