Kyushu Okinawa G8 Summit in Japan

en franšais

Japan has already organized 3 times summit meetings of G7/G8 but it took place always in Tokyo. This year (year 2000), Japanese government has decided to organize it in a province and the candidature of Kyushu-Okinawa region has been chosen by the late prime minister, Keizo Obuchi, because of an ordeal that Okinawaians have suffered since the World War II, especially the nuisance provoked by an excessive concentration of American military bases.

Geographic distribution of summit meetings is as the followings: Fukuoka, located in the north of Kyushu island organizes the meeting of Finance Ministers on 8 July. Miyazaki, located in the south of Kyushu island organizes the meeting of Foreign Ministers between 12 and 13 July. Finally, the summit itself, i.e. the meeting of nations' leaders will be held in Okinawa island located on the south of Kyushu between 21 and 23 July.
