The government has started preliminary work on determining how best to support rebuilding efforts in areas of northeastern Japan devastated by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster when the Reconstruction Agency is abolished in March 2021, sources said Tuesday.

The government is currently talking with 12 municipalities in Fukushima Prefecture, where a number of residents were forced to evacuate following the triple meltdown at Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc.’s crippled Fukushima No. 1 power plant. The goal is to find out what support the municipalities expect from the central government, officials said.
