    a high regard = a high concern?

    To better prevent an accident like the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan, there must be a high regard given to matters of safety.

    The underlined 'regard' is closest in meaning to ________.
    A. respect B. concern C. standard D. education

    The given answer is B. But does 'a high concern' equal 'a high regard'?

    Thank you in advance.
