NHK TICAD_PowerAfricaSigning2reported this morning that ahead of the start of the Tokyo International Conference on African Development in Kenya, the governments of the U.S. and Japan signed a memorandum of cooperation on Thursday to promote investment in environmentally-friendly energy sources in Africa and jointly develop geothermal power generation especially in East Africa. Noting that it is urgently necessary for Africa to secure new energy sources in line with its economic growth, the network quoted USAID Assistant Administrator for Africa Linda Etim as saying that she looks forward to working with Japan, which has strong expertise in the field.
