The editing committee for a project aimed at recovering the Ryukyu Kingdom’s diplomatic record or Rekidai Houan reported on its third plan on December 20. The committee, led by a professor emeritus, Seitoku Kinjo, reported to the prefectural school superintendent, Shojin Heshiki, the third basic plan for the projects envisioned after 2018. The report requests the project complete the publications of all the translation and footnotes by 2021 as well as start editing dictionaries and relevant documents.

The prefectural education board launched the project in 1989 and has worked on collection of materials in Japan, Taiwan, and China, as well as on editing the reprinted editions and its translation. The report will be reflected in the third plan for the fiscal year of 2016 to 2027. The superintendent Heshiki, who received the report said, “We would like to institute our basic plan accordingly to the report.”
