JICA Research Institute Director Akio Hosono, together with JICA’s Central and South America Department Deputy Director General Hajime Takeuchi, attended the general meeting at this high-level forum, where Hosono gave a presentation as panelist. He spoke of JICA’s support for South-South Cooperation and Triangular Cooperation in Central and South America in front of the government and donor representatives from this region.
In this forum, the subject of “Characteristics and Possibilities of Triangular and South-South Cooperation” was discussed at the plenary session, followed by the three sessions—“Participation of Civil Groups, the Private Sectors and Financial Groups,” “New Themes and Challenges,” and “Indicators for the Effectiveness of South-South Cooperation.”

In response to Hosono’s presentation, the representative of Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit：GIZ) commented: “Sympathizing with many of JICA’s assertions, we think complementary input from a partner familiar with supporting area is an advantage of Triangular Cooperation and this provides a great impact.” At the same time, the government officials from the Central and South America region gave positive comments and showed a great interest in JICA projects.
