Abstract:

Japan’ s development cooperation policy has been shaped by the countr y’ s unique position as the world’s largest aid recipient following World War II and its rapid transformation into the world’s top aid donor. In this article, Kimio Fujita, President of the Japan International Cooperation Agency, examines the history of Japan’ s unique style of development cooperation and looks at how par ticular development projects are carried out. In applying the Japanese experience, he says, it is necessar y to take a flexible approach that considers the environment, society, traditions, and other conditions of the partner country. The three key concepts of “Japanese experience,” “discovery and identification,” and “creativity” are likely to emerge as guidelines for effective cooperation.
