Asahi wrote that in response to the terrorist attack in Dhaka in July that killed seven Japanese nationals who were involved in ODA projects in Bangladesh, MOFA has put together safety measures for aid workers and NGO members. The measures include yen loans to small and medium-sized companies involved in development projects to reduce their financial burden. In addition, the government has included a total of 6.5 billion yen in a second draft supplementary budget for fiscal 2016 to pay for satellite telephones, bulletproof vehicles, and other equipment to strengthen security at Japanese embassies and JICA offices overseas. Mainichi and Nikkei ran similar reports.
