Hometown Investment Trust Funds for Regional Development



Based on the perspectives summarised in  Chap. 2, this chapter considers two fields which hold even greater promise for the utilization of HIT schemes. Specifically, this refers to the utilization of HIT schemes related to (1) “regional development that utilizes local industry and attracts new business start-ups” as part of earthquake disaster reconstruction, and (2) the Kokusyu (Sake and Shochu) Project, which government bodies are promoting cooperatively from the perspective of “locally generated global marketing.”
