Braveridge to Expand Wireless Module Production
Fukuoka based manufacturer Braveridge will open a new plant in Itoshima to expand production of its LoRaWAN-compatible wireless modules. There, the company plans to mass produce equipment and modules for monitoring terminals and anti-theft tags. Part of the R&D functions currently conducted at the company's headquarters will also be moved to the new plant, along with some manufacturing capabilities from its existing plants. The new plant will be built inside Itoshima Research Park, an industrial park sponsored by Fukuoka Prefecture, and Braveridge will be the first company from the private sector to set up shop in the park. When construction began, the Prefecture designated Braveridge as a Green Asia International Strategic Comprehensive Special Zone company. The new plant is scheduled to go into operation this November.

Fukuoka Prefecture Revises, Distributes Disaster Prevention Handbook for Foreigners
An increasing number of municipalities throughout Kyushu are creating multilingual pamphlets to provide foreign residents with disaster prevention information. After last year's earthquakes in Kumamoto, a large number of foreign residents ended up isolated because they were unaware of the evacuation centers. This March, Fukuoka Prefecture revised its Disaster Prevention Handbook for Foreigners, which it created in 2012 in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Originally available in English, Chinese, Korean and Tagalog, this revision saw the addition of two new languages: Nepali and Vietnamese. Handbooks are available at government offices and other facilities that offer services to foreign residents.

Fukuoka Prefecture to Secure 10% Stake in New Airport Operating Company
Governor Ogawa has expressed his intention for the Prefecture to secure a 10% stake, the limit that a local government can acquire, in the new privatized operating company for Fukuoka Airport. Shareholders of joint stock companies can gain different kinds of rights depending on their level of investment. With a 10% share, a shareholder can reintroduce proposals that have been rejected at the shareholders meeting without any restrictions, thereby becoming more involved in the management of the company. Governor Ogawa hopes this move will allow the Prefecture to incorporate the voices of the local community into the operation of the airport.
