The Government of Japan extends its grant assistance to the Republic of Ghana. UNIDO will cooperate with Japan and Ghana on implementing the project “Expanding the Kaizen Initiative through Enhancing Sustainable Agribusiness” with funding from Japan amounting to 542,000,000 Japanese Yen (approx. 5.02 million USD).


H.E. Mr. MOCHIZUKI Hisanobu, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to the Republic of Ghana, and Mr. Fakhruddin Azizi, UNIDO Representative, Country Office in Ghana, signed and exchanged Notes regarding implementation of the project on 18 July 2022 in Accra.
The project aims at promoting SMEs by providing equipment and conducting technical trainings for expanding Kaizen in the agribusiness field. The expected outcome is a sustainable and consistent economic growth of Ghana through strengthening of the industrial base.
In 2019 the Government of Japan announced its target to diversify industries and develop human resources in support of job creation through the Kaizen Initiative, etc. at TICAD 7. The new project in Ghana contributes to the achievement of this target.
Japan expects steady implementation of the project making use of UNIDO's expertise and experience in technical cooperation. Japan and UNIDO will continue to cooperate closely in promoting the achievement of the SDGs.
