The Executive Secretary of the UN Economic Commission for Africa outlined six key areas in which Japan could focus their investments and assistance to Africa, explaining that these are areas in which investments would be mutually beneficial to the two sides. the urgent need for upscaling cooperation between Japan and Africa by increasing the amount and scope of official development assistance to Africa. A starting point would be to meet the commitments made in Monterrey and the Gleneagles Summit of the G8. Japan was the pioneer of some of the most successful development and cooperation models and used its knowledge and experience to mutual advantage in its relations with Asia.
