The Long-Term Comprehensive Plan
New Ibaraki Comprehensive Plan
"Healthy Ibaraki Strategic Plan"
Making a more liveable Ibaraki together!
Japan now stands at a crucial turning point, entering an age of global competition with its population beginning to decline. Amidst these conditions, our prefecture has great potential and a competitive edge in areas such as its rich nature; comfortable climate; distinctive culture and history; abundant agricultural and marine products; cutting-edge science and technology; a concentration of Japan's leading manufacturing businesses; and steadily advancing development in its regional land, sea, and air transport network.
We must develop each of these things even further, and it behooves all the residents of the prefecture to exercise their individuality and abilities to work towards building an Ibaraki that will be full of vitality now and in the future.
It was based on this belief, and taking into consideration the opinions of residents, businesses, non-profit organizations, municipalities, and many others, that the New Ibaraki Comprehensive Plan "Healthy Ibaraki Strategic Plan" was settled on.
