Four personnel from JICA(Japan International Cooperation Agency) talked about Japan/JICA’s assistance policy and specific assistance to the Pacific island countries.
During the question and answer session, the participants asked many questions and made many comments from various perspectives on renewable energy in island countries, which showed the growing interest of private companies and organizations.
