Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Kotaro Nogami visited Asakura City, Fukuoka Prefecture

投稿日:2021年9月8日 更新日:

Asakura City, which is part of my electoral district, was hit by torrential rain last month, and agricultural land and orchards in Haki Ward in the city were seriously damaged. Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Kotaro Nogami visited the area today, and observed the landslide zone there. As a Diet member in charge of this area, I welcomed the Minister and listened to the explanation about the landslide together with the Mayor of Asakura City, the chief of the local agricultural cooperative, and many other people concerned.

Four years have passed since disasters in northern Kyushu including Asakura City were triggered by torrential rain in June-July 2017. At that time, I asked then Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and several ministers to inspect the disaster areas in Fukuoka Prefecture, and my eager request was granted. In addition, Asakura City, Soeda Town and Toho Village in Fukuoka Prefecture were promptly designated as extremely severe disasters by ordinance. I reconfirmed the importance of the role of Diet members through my work on this matter.
