The structure in Madagascar was such that roughly half of its annual national budget was dependent on aid from foreign donors. In March 2009, however, a “transitional government” was established in an unconstitutional process, leading to major donor countries and agencies freezing new aid. As this has continued, Madagascar's economy has stagnated, with the economic growth dropping from negative 0.4 percent in 2009 to negative 7.18 percent in 2010. With the exception of projects already being conducted, in line with governmental policy, JICA has made the decision to not carry out any new bilateral aid for the time being as a general policy. However, new projects of an emergency or humanitarian nature, as well as new projects for assisting the democratization process will be considered in terms of suitability for implementation determined by JICA on an individual basis.
