Strength of the region's industries and economy
Located in the northeast of Shikoku Island and across the Inland Sea from the Kinki district on the main island of Japan, Kagawa Prefecture enjoys a mild, warm, and dry climate throughout the year and has been developed historically as a center of economy, culture, and industry in Shikoku as the gateway to the main island. In the 21st century, the prefecture drafted and will implement a new policy on the economy, industries, life, and environment and covers not only its residents but also exchanges in a variety of fields with people in other parts of Japan and even foreign countries. In the economy and industry field, above all, the prefecture focuses on improving the infrastructures to ease access to the Kinki economic bloc, which is one of the largest in Japan, and to the Chubu and Tokyo economic blocs to contribute to the development of industries in the prefecture.
Under the Ordinance to Promote the Establishment of Enterprises in Kagawa Prefecture, the prefecture provides a subsidy program of up to 500 million yen for companies that plan to newly establish plants, testing and research facilities, call centers and other information processing-related facilities, distribution-base facilities, facilities for fortifying regional bases, and tourist facilities. It also provides tax breaks for prefectural taxes.
Moreover, the municipal governments in the prefecture also provide subsidy programs for companies that intend to establish plants, testing and research facilities, transport facilities, information processing-related facilities, and other similar facilities in their municipalities. These municipal subsidies and prefectural subsidies are available simultaneously.
