Governor Promotes Fukushima Foods in Hong Kong

   Hong Kong, Jan. 26 (Jiji Press)--Masao Uchibori, governor of Fukushima Prefecture, has promoted the safety of foods from the northeastern Japan prefecture, home to a heavily damaged nuclear plant, during his visit to Hong Kong that started on Thursday.
   Hong Kong introduced restrictions on food imports from the prefecture after a triple meltdown occurred at Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc.'s <9501> Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power station, which was knocked out by tsunami from the March 2011 powerful earthquake.
   Uchibori is the first Fukushima governor to visit Hong Kong after the natural and nuclear disasters for the promotion of foods produced in the prefecture.
   During the stay, Uchibori met with officials of an industry association related to Japanese foods.
   He also paid a courtesy call on a senior Hong Kong government official in charge of import regulations.
