Official Development Assistance (ODA)

January 21, 2022

2014 was the 60th anniversary of Japan's first provision of technical cooperation to Asian countries after joining the Colombo Plan(Note) in 1954. Over the course of those 60 years, Japan went through the post-war period and high growth period, and its ODA has played a significant role. It has helped Japan contribute to addressing a wide range of local and global issues as a responsible member of the international community, and by doing so, build peace and prosperity for itself.

(Note) A framework for cooperation established in 1950 to support the economic and social development of countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Japan has also been providing technical cooperation since 1955 as a member, including accepting trainees and dispatching experts.
