Japan’s ODA Assistance Scheme and Central Asian Engagement: Determinants, Trends, and Expectations

Part of the Politics and History in Central Asia book series (PSPSCA)


In keeping with how China is described in the following chapters, Japan is searching for its own mode of engagement in Central Asia. Its standing in the region has strengthened significantly in the decade after the collapse of the Soviet Union in that Japan has provided large contributions, in terms of both ODA and financial loans to regional countries.1 However, there is a sense both in Japan and in the majority of CA countries that the potential for cooperation between Japan and CA countries is not being fully and properly realized. The impact of its assistance and cooperation programs often falls short of the expectations of CA governments and the general population.
