African Development Support and Business Opportunities

Development assistance operations are official operations that international organizations and governments of developed countries including Japan conduct in cooperation with the governments of developing countries. Private sector companies have also growingly supported development assistance, while volunteers and non-government organizations have been activating such assistance.

Development assistance operations are also key economic operations that substitute for or complement government sector operations in developing countries and represent a major business area in which private companies and expert consultants participate. Public-private partnership is indispensable for successful development projects.

As Japan’s development assistance for Africa has expanded, Japanese people and companies have growingly been involved in such assistance with many Japanese people working in African fields.

This section provides information about how Japanese people and companies have participated in public-private partnership in development assistance for Africa and what business chances the assistance has created. Specific cases of Japanese people’s and companies participation and performance in African development projects will be introduced in the section for “Japanese Companies Participation in Development Projects.” This section will also introduce links to major development organizations Africa-related bidding information.
