Promotional efforts are being made to showcase all the excellent environmental technologies developed within the city, while R&D bases for advanced science are being established.

An international strategic based is being created at the “KING SKYFRONT (Kawasaki INnovation Gateway at SKYFRONT),” which is situated on the opposing shore to Haneda International Airport. This project will fully utilize the International Strategic Comprehensive Special Zones policy, and is being carried out in line with the “Shin-Kawasaki Forest of Creation” area, which is a research and development base for advanced technologies including nano and micro technologies. Frontier industries and research institutes will be integrated into this area, establishing bases which will offer solutions to global issues through the life science and environmental fields.
