Shiga sets up a task force to deal with new administration

On September 9, Shiga Prefectural Government (SPG) set up a task force, because the new administration led by the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) will be shortly born. The reason why the new team was established was to determine how policies mentioned in DPJ's manifesto would affect the prefecture's policies and to propose the prefecture's policies to the new administration.

The task force, led by Senior Managing Director Yoshikatsu Seko, consists of 20 officials picked up from each department, Board of Education, Police Headquarters. The team is expected to gather information regarding new policies that the DPJ is planning to implement.

"The policies will drastically change at the national level, so we, young officials included, will propose new policies so that our ideas can be adopted by the DPJ-led administration," says Seko.
