Neighboring both Tokyo and Yokohama, the city fosters a competitive industrial region that makes full use of an area rich with several R&D centers and universities. Policies are being pursued which will create and promote new world-class industries that will harmonize the welfare and environmental sectors while utilizing accomplishments in scientific technology. The vitalization of industries within the city are facilitated by the enticement of corporations and Asian venture businesses, as well as the promotion of new business creation, industry development, and technology partnerships.
Aiming to create an active city, Kawasaki strives to develop local headquarters and traffic networks within the city, in addition to establishing a regional traffic network for the Tokyo metropolitan area.
Furthermore, the city intends to promote the creation of an international strategic base, the KING SKYFRONT (Tonomachi area), along Kawasaki’s coastal area, which will function as a driving force propelling the Japanese economy. Under this plan, the city will make effective use of the National government’s International Strategic Special Zone policy.
In order to promote policies for workers, the city works on the creation of a system to utilize human resources in the region and hand down excellent technology as well as product-crafting techniques to the next generation.
