JBIC took the opportunity of TICAD8 to hold and participate in meetings with representatives from 13 countries and institutions, further strengthening the relationships with African countries and development financial institutions, while exchanging opinions on specific possibilities for providing financial support.
In addition, JBIC signed memoranda of understanding with the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development of the Republic of Uganda, the Ministry of Economy and Finance of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire, and the West African Development Bank (BOAD), to facilitate, inter alia, the structuring of environmental preservation projects where Japanese companies will participate in the region*1.
