The Transport Ministry today will begin posting information on foreign countries’ Y2K preparations for New Year’s flights on its Web site, amid high expectations of computer problems during the annual changeover.

The ministry’s home page (http://www.motnet.go.jp/KOHO98/com2000_.htm) will cover information on the aviation control systems, airports and airlines of 40 countries and regions with service to Japan. The site will be updated twice a month.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
