Japan pledges $30 billion in aid to Africa over three years

TUNIS (Reuters) – Japan pledged on Saturday to pour 30 billion dollars (30.1 billion euros) in aid to Africa over three years and to cooperate more closely with the continent.

At the 8th Tokyo International Conference on African Development, held in Tunis, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida assured that his government would work to ensure grain deliveries to Africa amid global shortages caused by the war in Ukraine.

“If we abandon a rules-based society and allow unilateral changes to the status quo by force, the consequences will extend not only to Africa, but to the whole world,” said Fumio Kishida.

The Japanese Prime Minister, who is positive for Covid-19, spoke by videoconference.
