Fukuoka Prefecture is accelerating its effort to assist in matchmaking for its single residents. In the fiscal year of 2020, the prefecture will launch a new center to connect companies whose employees are seeking partners. The project aims to encourage the involvement of more people, including those who feel embarrassed to register for such a service individually. The prefecture has been supporting marriage as a measure to increase the regional birth rate. Source: Nishi Nippon 02/12/2020
