'Appication of PPP in SME business


Feasibility Survey for SMEs oversea business  (Consultating 2015-2017):    Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) promotes overseas business development and projects for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through public-private partnerships (PPP). Fuji Construction Works Co. Ltd. (FCWC) in Tokushima has developed a solar-powered LED light designed to blink on the road surface to prevent car accidents. They collaborated with the Ministry of Public Works in Cambodia under JICA's PPP scheme to address traffic accidents and electric source issues by implementing their LED light technology.

What sort of country is Cambodia? 

Centre of Khmer Culture with an enigmatic language and its letters

In Cambodia, located to the south of the Indochina Peninsula, the Khmer Empire flourished from the 9th to the 13th century, leaving behind the magnificent Angkor Wat temple complex (pictured on the right) as a symbol of Khmer culture. This culture also gave birth to the distinctive Khmer language (សាខ្មែរ), which remains the official language of Cambodia to this day.

The modern friendship between Japan and Cambodia began with a diplomatic agreement in 1952. With the exception of the period during the Pol Pot regime, diplomatic relations were reestablished in 1992. Since then, Japan has been providing assistance to Cambodia in various fields, including demining, infrastructure construction, education, and healthcare, to support the country's recovery, nation-building, and development.

近代の日本とカンボジアの友好関係は1952年の外交協定に始まり、ポルポト政権の空白期を除き、1992年から外交関係を再開したとされます。以来、日本は地雷撤去からインフラ建設, 教育,保健などいろいろな分野でカンボジアの復興・建国・発展に協力しています。
