QHow is Fukushima's recovery going?
ARecovery initiatives are well underway including in the municipalities around the nuclear power station. Current projects include the Fukushima Innovation Coast Framework initiative.

Recovery initiatives are underway across Fukushima Prefecture. Industries are reopening, agriculture is being restarted, and new businesses are being attracted to the prefecture.

Particular focus is being placed on the municipalities around the nuclear power station. Under the Fukushima Innovation Coast Framework (FICF), pioneering initiatives are being implemented to revive the industries in areas like the Hamadori coastal region that were destroyed by the Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent nuclear disaster.

New projects are being developed as part of the FICF in the fields of robotics (including drones), energy, the environment (including recycling), agriculture, forestry, fisheries, medicine, and aerospace.
