Aid as External Economic Policy: Cases of Japan and China
Japan’s aid had 60th anniversary in 2014, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs newly established ‘Development Cooperation Charter’, which proclaims aid policy based on national interest.
International aid and development assistance regime, which was created as one of the vehicles to manage post-WW II world, now faces with challenge from China. China’s policy of ‘South-South cooperation’ advanced to a more global phase exemplified by the establishment of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank and the New Development Bank.
Development assistance policy or economic cooperation policy of Japan and China shares some characteristics. To compare both policies based on such similarities will help our mutual understanding and also be useful to upgrade Japan’s aid policy.
