Bottom-up Regional Growth Strategy Creates the Future of Japan
- From "Switzerland in the Orient" to "Matsumoto Health Valley" *
Isamu Hirao** and Akira Sugenoya***
This report describes the severe current situations of our regional economy, structural problems behind these situations, and bottom-up public involvement in the formation of an industrial cluster. We will also look at the concrete approach to the formation of "Construction of Matsumoto Health Valley". I consider that a regional specific and practical approach is extremely important for a robust national growth strategy.
