Come on Japan, this is your perfect out! Claim that you need the materials and money to help rebuild the stricken area of Noto. Nobody will blame you. Get all the construction companies to go up there to rebuild so they can still get their money. It is a win win. Nobody and I mean nobody wants this stupid Expo!

The Expo is the lead up to the building of the Integrated Resort (Casino) in Osaka, which will utilise the facilities and developments cheaply afterwards, and that is BIG money. The usual suspects don't want to upset that.

Japan? Nothing.

Crooked politicians and CEOs, billions of yen.

Well, Expo IS a priority -- not helping people. Expo brings a few international eyes on the location it's held (not very many, but a few), and brings HEAPS of money to the politicians and construction companies that host/build it. What the heck does reconstruction get you?

Of course the Expo will go ahead,the ‘elite’ don’t want to waste such a cash cow for themselves.

Great opportunity for them to turn taxpayers cash into a lucrative sort of revenue for themselves.
