What is a JICA support project?
The JICA support project is a project by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to support the matching of development needs of developing countries with the products and technologies of Japanese private companies.
There are three phases: basic survey, project development survey, and dissemination demonstration business commercialization project, and private companies make proposals and applications for each open call for participants. In response to the adopted proposal, JICA will place an order for business to a private company in the form of a business consignment, in which the private company will proceed with its own overseas business development.
Since some of the expenses required to prepare for overseas expansion, such as travel expenses and local activity expenses, are covered by JICA's outsourcing expenses, it is possible to proceed with overseas expansion at a relatively low cost.
