Nikkei wrote that the GOJ announced on Wednesday that Japan will stop providing yen loans for the construction of coal-fired electricity plants in Indonesia and Bangladesh. The G7 nations agreed to halt by the end of 2021 new forms of aid for coal-burning power stations that fail to take measures to curb emissions, and Japan had maintained its aid for the construction of the Indramayu plant in Indonesia and the Matarbari plant in Bangladesh by saying that the plants were exempt as “ongoing cases.” However, Japan reversed its policy in response to international criticism of coal-fired power, the paper said.
