Fukuoka Prefecture Selected For Space Business Promotion 

As of September 4, the central government designated Fukuoka Prefecture as one of the ‘Municipalities for Promoting Creation of Space Business.’ The program will support the development of new space businesses by holding JAXA-collaborated events, seminars, and lectures related to satellite data workshops to trigger more business ideas and more during the next three years. While four other prefectures, including Hokkaido and Fukui, had been selected for the program in 2018, Fukuoka is the first within Kyushu. Source: Fukuoka Prefecture
