Create attractive jobs for young people
For young people to choose Kobe and become responsible for the city’s future, we need to increase the number of attractive jobs that are worthwhile for young people.
In the Kobe 2020 Vision, we will address the creation of diverse and attractive jobs encouraging young people to work in Kobe. We will encourage development of new businesses by young people and support new business creation. We will attract businesses in growth industries to create a city of attractive and high-quality employment. Also, we will develop and promote next-generation, key industries. In addition, we will also promote measures to ensure development of human resources by taking advantage of the concentration of universities and other institutions in the city.
Create attractions to draw in young people
To draw young people to Kobe, we also have to improve the city’s culture, arts and sports attractions.
In the Kobe 2020 Vision, through promotion of Kobe as a design city, we will develop multi-faceted, multi-layered measures to produce new attractions and expand Kobe’s existing attractions. In addition, with proactive and high-quality promotions, we will transmit Kobe’s diverse charms nationwide and to the world as a whole, and we will advance initiatives for diverse groups of people from Japan and abroad, regardless of nationality or age, to visit and interact with Kobe. We will promote initiatives for migration and settlement to allow residents to experience an even higher quality of life.
Create a social system enabling the young generation to prioritize marriage, childbirth, raising children and education
Enabling young people to fulfill their hopes of marriage, childbirth and raising children is key to putting the brakes on the trend of declining births. Also, improving the environment for childbirth and education will make the city more attractive.
In the Kobe 2020 Vision, to enable people to achieve their hopes of marriage and childbirth and also raise and educate their children comfortably, we will promote continuous support of marriage, expecting mothers, childbirth, raising children and education. Also, we will enhance the educational system and reform working styles.
