African Development Support and Business Opportunities

Development assistance operations are the official operations that international organizations and governments of developed countries conduct in cooperation with the governments of developing countries. Private sector companies also gradually started to support development assistance while volunteers and non-government organizations have been activating such assistance.

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

As Japan’s development assistance for Africa has been expanded, Japanese citizens and companies become more involved in such assistance; now many Japanese are working in and with Africa.

This section introduces the information about how Japanese people and companies have participated in the public-private partnership in the development assistance for Africa, and what business opportunities such assistance has created. Specific cases with the Japanese participations in African development projects will be introduced under the section, “Japanese Companies Participation in Development Projects,” which will also contains links to major Africa-related development organizations.
