Statement by Mr. Masatsugu Asakawa at the 93rd meeting of the Development Committee held on April 16, 2016 (Inglês)

This is a statement by Mr. Masatsugu Asakawa, Vice Minister of Finance, International Affairs at the ninety-third meeting of the Development Committee held on April 16, 2016. He states that the forced displacement is one of the biggest challenges the world faces today. By the end of 2015, about 20 million refugees existed worldwide, and most of them were forcibly displaced from their home countries to the neighboring countries. Forced displacement should be addressed not only from the aspect of short-term ex-post response but also from that of preparedness and prevention. Japan supports the approach of the World Bank Group (WBG) to explore a comprehensive solution to the refugee issues including income inequality and unemployment, by strengthening assistance to mitigate vulnerabilities based on each country partnership framework (CPF). Japan appreciates the WBG for leading the effort in developing the new financing initiative to support the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to provide support for the host countries of refugees such as Lebanon and Jordan. Furthermore, as a joint assistance with the WBG, Japan will make 30 million United States (U.S.) dollars contribution to the International Finance Corporation (IFC) MENA fund, LP, in order to support job creation in the MENA region through Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in cooperation with the Gulf countries.
