4) Administration services
a. At central government office buildings as well as branch offices, people can obtain various certificates, such as residents' certificates, proof of seal registration or other documents at one counter. A so-called ''one-stop Service'' would be introduced.
b. Public facilities information and reservation services should be introduced to enable people to apply for or confirm reservations from their own home or company
c. Outside the boundaries of local government, people can obtain administration services such as residents' certificates through an ID information network system.
5) Exchange of information with citizens
Administrative information such as information concerning city office services, local events and local promotion projects should be provided on the internet. People could send their opinions on local administration services through the internet.
(3) Local industry information infrastructure
At the forefront are research and development companies in the field of information communications-related industries, international software development bases and manpower training organizations. Cooperation between individuals, companies and scholars is being promoted.
Information and communications policies for regional development should be developed taking into account that local industry may be revitalized by the information infrastructure.
1) Information infrastructure for local companies
Joint facilities and a software industrial park should be built to open up new markets for local companies and widen their field of operations.
Research and development in cooperation with universities and public institutions should be financially supported by local governments.
2) Promotion of information industry
An advanced information infrastructure would overcome the difficulties faced by remote areas in comparison with metropolitan areas and encourage information communications-related industries to locate in local areas where there is a better quality of life for workers.
