Nagasaki Prefecture is strengthening its efforts to attract more university and college graduates who were born in Nagasaki to work in their hometown. The number of people who moved out of Nagasaki exceeded those who moved in by 6,311 in 2018, which was the largest such movement in western Japan. To prevent losing so many young people, the prefecture doubled the number of its “career coordinators” to provide information and consultations to students who are interested in coming back to Nagasaki for work. A position dedicated to students in Fukuoka has also been added. The prefecture is working on inviting new manufacturers and IT companies, as well as information on local internship programs.
