The President of the African Development Bank Group (AfDB) Donald Kaberuka, diagnosis http://clinicapetterson.com.br/wp-includes/post-template.php has urged Japanese businesses to take advantage of the comparative cost of labour to invest in mutually beneficial production in Africa, Chimp  Corps report.

Speaking at the end of a two-day farewell visit to Tokyo this week, Kaberuka said both sides would benefit if Japanese authorities could assist their firms to set up businesses in Africa while urging African governments to enable such companies establish viable businesses especially in the energy sector.

He commended the decision to organize the sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) in Africa in 2016, and underscored the need for the conference to build on the momentum and outcomes of TICAD V held in Yokohama in 2013, by scaling up the conversation between the governments and businesses on both sides.


Africa’s continued growth has sparked the interest of investors from industrialized nations, resulting in fierce competition for its resources and markets.

The aggressive economic expansion efforts by China and India, among others, come to mind.

According to Africa Renewal, Japan, however, has been a subtle but effective partner of Africa for the past 50 years. Through its donor arm, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), it has given aid in the form of grants and loans and invested with its own distinct style based on local ownership, peace, governance and human rights.

It also works with a wide range of international partners, including the UN, donors and the civil society, coordinating and implementing projects in the field.


During the Visit, Kaberuka met Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the minister of finance and deputy prime minister, Taro Aso; the President of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Akihito Tanaka, and Central Bank Governor, Haruhiko Kuroda, among other top government officials and business leaders.

He also gave a talk on how to “further consolidate relations between Africa and Japan” at a luncheon attended by the African Diplomatic Corps in Japan.

Japan joined the African Development Fund (ADF) in June 1973 and the African Development Bank (AfDB) in December 1982.

Japan is the second largest contributor to ADF in cumulative terms after the United States and the third largest shareholder in the AfDB after the United States and Nigeria.

In addition to TICAD organized every five years since 1993, Japan collaborates with the Bank Group in many areas including the Japan Policy and Human Resources Development Grant (PHRDG) and the Joint Bank-Japan Enhanced Private Sector Assistance (EPSA) Initiative, among others.

The Bank opened its first external representation office in Tokyo in October 2012 and has been strengthening its ties
The Security Council has authorized the Member States of the African Union to maintain the deployment of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) for an additional 10 months, symptoms http://clearlakefestival.ca/wp-includes/class-wp-http-ixr-client.php until 30 May 2016.

Uganda is leading the AMISOM operation in the war-torn country.

Several strategic towns have been liberated from the terrorists in the last few years but bombings remain a routine occurrence in the Capital Mogadishu.

Al Shabaab on July 26 masterminded the bombing of Al-Jazeera Hotel in Somalia’s capital, rx http://cortrium.com/wp-includes/class-wp-image-editor.php Mogadishu.

The attack resulted in a number of casualties and injuries, http://cheapjuicer.xyz/wp-includes/pluggable.php including to staff of diplomatic missions of several countries whose missions were based in the hotel.

By the unanimously adopted text, the Council followed the Secretary-General’s recommendation that conditions would not be appropriate for a United Nations peacekeeping operation in the country until the end of 2016, at the earliest.

This means Ugandan forces will stay in Somalia up to 2016.

The Council also extended the mandate of the UN Special Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) until 30 March 2016, underlining the importance that both AMISOM and UNSOM strengthen their relationship to ensure support for the country’s political process.

Authorizing the deployment of up to 22,126 uniformed personnel for AMISOM, the Council requested a “structured and targeted” reconfiguration of the Mission to enable a surge in its efficiency. And by 30 October 2015, the African Union should have developed, in close collaboration with the United Nations, a “new concept of operations” for the Mission, the Council requested.

Underscoring the importance of UNSOM’s support to the political process in Somalia, in particular the preparation of the electoral process in 2016, the Security Council requested from the Mission that it strengthens its presence in all capitals of Interim Regional Administrations.

Deployment of civilian planning in regional capitals should also be a priority in order to improve joint planning between military and civilian components, says the resolution adopted today.

On the national security front, the Council welcomed the adoption of the Guulwade (Victory) Plan by the Federal Government of Somalia, a “critical step” towards developing a more effective national army, nonetheless stressing the importance of accelerating improved coordination of Somali security institutions.

While it welcomed the Government’s commitment to an “inclusive and credible” electoral process in 2016, the Security Council also expressed concern at continued human rights violations in Somalia, underscoring the need to end impunity for such crimes.
