In response to the terrorist attack last month in Dhaka, Bangladesh, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) issued an interim report on safety measures for Japanese nationals engaged in international cooperation projects overseas.


One of the main decisions in the report is the establishment of a council on safety measures for international cooperation projects between MOFA and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The final report will be issued in late August.


According to the interim report, the number of area specialists and language specialists will be increased, and the scope of dissemination of emergency information in the event of incidents or accidents will be expanded to include Japanese corporations under contract with foreign governments. An emergency manual for the evacuation of Japanese citizens will be prepared as well.


At an inter-agency meeting including JICA on Monday, Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said, “Japan’s determination to seriously engage in the advancement of developing countries will remain unchanged.” The foreign minister went on to say that he intends to promptly consider specific measures.
