Economic and Social Development

Our Economic and Social Development Group focuses on private sector development and human resources training in industrial development.

In the field of trade and investment promotion, we have provided related governmental institutions of the targeted countries with assistance and technical advice for policy formulation, improvement of implementing ability for the goal of trade and investment promotion, by dispatch of our experts as JICA advisors.

We have continued making large impacts in the field of human resources training in industrial development by not only enforcement of the country’s policy and systems for the key and supporting industries by JICA experts, but also increase in the competitiveness and strengthening vocational training ability at training centers and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). This has been achieved by applying Japan’s technology, know-how, and organizational power, which have gained more attraction in emerging countries.
