On January 24 in Beijing, JICA-RI and CAITEC exchanged views on Japanese and Chinese aid for Africa, along with the possibility of future research cooperation between the two institutions. This meeting was organized for the first time since the memorandum that both parties had signed last year.
JICA introduced a blueprint for Japanese aid for Africa toward the fifth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD V), while CAITEC explained their direction of aid for Africa following the fifth Forum on China and Africa Cooperation (FOCAC); the two institutions agreed that their next meeting will be held in Beijing within this year.
Furthermore, the Institute exchanged opinions on the overseas economic cooperation of Japan and China and a current trend of international development studies, as well as possibilities of future collaboration with researchers and officials at the several organizations—Economic Research Department of the Export-Import Bank of China, National School of Development and School of International Studies at Peking University, College of Humanities and Development Studies at China Agricultural University, Emerging Markets Institute at Beijing Normal University and others—as part of development of a research networking between the two countries.
