Shiga Aquatic Environment Business Promotion Forum was established

With the population of Asia growing, pollution abatement and the demand for water have become key issues that attract public attention. Considering that lessons learned from Lake Biwa potentially could contribute to solving those issues, the Shiga Aquatic Environment Business Promotion Forum was established on March 25, by various organizations from academia, the public sector, and businesses.

A kickoff seminar was held at Korabo Shiga 21 building in Otsu, where Governor Kada described the aim of the Forum, saying "we will disseminate sustainable development based on the Lake Biwa model that balances economic development and environmental conservation, promoting international cooperation."
