Exchange Meeting Between the Government of Japan and Japanese NGOs in Zambia



On September 4, 2013, at the Ambassador’s Residence in Lusaka, an Exchange Meeting was held between Japanese NGOs in Zambia and the Government of Japan (i.e. the JICA Zambia Office and the Embassy of Japan in Zambia). The main purpose of the meeting was to share information between Japanese NGOs and the Government of Japan on endeavors to contribute to the economic and social development of Zambia.


His Excellency Mr. Akio Egawa, in his opening remarks, expressed his gratitude for efforts at the grassroots level of Japanese NGOs faced with the challenging environment. He also highlighted the importance of working together with Japanese NGOs as a team to encourage development in Africa, and reaffirmed the Government of Japan’s commitment to cooperation with the NGOs.


Japanese NGOs, all of which work in the health sector, introduced their development activities within the context of the current situation in Zambia. The Government of Japan explained some central issues to NGOs such as Japanese assistance policy on NGOs, assistance trends of other donors in Zambia, and the socio-economic situation in Zambia.


The Government of Japan promotes such meetings with non-governmental organisations including NGOs and the private sector to better implement its ODA to developing countries.
