» Cabinet approves new policy for rebuilding Fukushima

The Abe administration aired new policy guideline for rebuilding Fukushima Prefecture on Dec.20, which has more realistic policies  including abandoning the goal of having all evacuees return to their homes.

But the plan could raise criticism because taxpayers burden will increase.

Under the plan, the central government will provide additional compensation to evacuees to buy land and homes where they now reside. Compensation for psychological distress will also be paid to evacuees who are uncertain if they can ever return home.
