Name: UNION OF KANSAI GOVERNMENTS

Type of organization: Regional or local ministry / Government department

Description:

Creating a new era for Kansai. On December 1st, 2010, seven Kansai prefectures (two Fu and five Ken) with common ambitions established a new inter-prefectural "Union of Kansai Governments" (UKG). This is the first extended inter-prefectural Association of its kind in Japan.


The UKG has steadily advanced the region-wide administrative work such as promotion of the disaster prevention and mitigation plan for the entire Kansai region, support for areas devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake using counterpart system, Strategic promotions of Kansai to attract customers and tourists, establishment of joint helicopter ambulance services, region-wide animal damage control program, etc.


Nara prefecture became a member of the UKG as of December 2015, following the entry of four major Kansai municipalities (Kyoto City, Osaka City, Sakai City, and Kobe City) in 2012. All prefectures in the Kansai region have joined together to achieve "Same Kansai" while respecting the diversity of each distinct "Unit of Kansai".


The UKG, as a responsible political entity for the entire Kansai region, will deal with the challenges that spread beyond prefectural borders. At the same time, the union sets its sights on breaking the impasse in the decentralization of authority and in restructuring Japan to create a multipolar distributed structure. The UKG will also require the national government to transfer its branch offices to local governments.
All UKG member prefectures and municipalities will work hard to make Kansai an independent region that can implement its own policies and establishment as a thriving cultural and industrial hub in Asia.
