The Japanese Economic, Trade and Industry Ministry began studies on Monday to examine putting flying cars to practical use.

An advisory panel will conduct discussions on integrating flying cars to the current transportation network and develop a roadmap for their application by 2020. Additionally, the ministry intends to facilitate public-private cooperation to overcome any of the challenges that integration of flying cars may bring.

Why it’s important: Singapore and the United Arab Emirates already provide demonstration sites for flying cars, and growing sentiment toward becoming “flying-car friendly” represents a lucrative economic and infrastructure development stance for the host country.
