Govt teams up with private sector to export Japan's disaster-prevention technology

Source(s):  Japan News, the - Yomiuri Shimbun

The government will enhance cooperation with private companies to expand exports of disaster-related technologies and infrastructure.

It plans to set up a new public-private liaison group, called the Japan International Public-Private Association for Disaster Risk Reduction (JIPAD), later this month to promote the latest technologies developed by Japanese companies, such as earthquake and tsunami observation and civil engineering, aiming at contributing to disaster prevention in developing countries and also helping Japanese companies grow.


The government, together with JIPAD member companies, plans to hold public-private seminars at home and abroad on disaster prevention that target foreign government officials in charge of disaster prevention to advertise Japan’s disaster-prevention technology.


The government also plans to export technologies in fields where they are needed, such as measures against ground liquefaction at airports, state-of-the-art weather radars, and earthquake-resistance techniques for buildings, bridges and port facilities.
