Background of Establishment

Japan has been one of the major countries which donate to developing countries by means of official development assistance (ODA). Among Japanese ODA, infrastructure development projects such as road, bridge, flood damage mitigation, sewerage and regional planning have been prominently featured. They have been successfully contributing to the advancement in various aspects including economics and living in developing countries.

Japanese government engineers have been largely participating in the infrastructural development assistance through Japanese ODA schemes. Their participation extends to the areas of JICA technical expert, infrastructure development studies, training of foreign engineers, appraisal of projects conducted by Japanese financial assistance and secondment to international agencies.

The Japanese aid is by its nature executed through direct contacts between recipient governments and Japanese government. However, due to the recent diversification of social needs, there appear to be cases where more active participation of the private sector either in group or individually on a voluntary basis is getting desirable to effectively and quickly meet recipient’s needs, as for instance witnessed by the grass root assistance of Japanese ODA.

It is also worth mentioning that because of global political complexity and financial problems on the part of the governments of developed countries, the improvements to infrastructure in developing countries have been increasingly requiring assistance and cooperation from the private sector in developed countries.

In response to these changes of the environments surrounding ODA, those who are ex-Japanese governmental engineers and committed to contribution toward the development of infrastructure in developing countries, established JIP. Our primary objective is to lend a helping hand to both the public and private sectors in the areas of infrastructure development.

The members of JIP have been positively involved and highly experienced in policies, planning, engineering works related to infrastructure development in Japan. They are well acquainted with the Japanese aid policies and procedures, thanks to their active participation in various Japanese aid schemes during their services for the Japanese government. We believe JIP could extend technical assistance and advice necessary for developing countries as their partners.
