Port and logistics functions are integrated in the coastal area, and the land is mainly used for factories and other manufacturing functions. The Yumeshima and Sakishima districts, as well as the Hanshin Port district, are designated as part of the Kansai Innovation International Strategic Comprehensive Special Zone. Utilizing the strategic special zone system, we aim at integrating the strong environment and energy industries of Kansai, and reinforcing the international logistics functions of the districts to support these industries.
