Japan began providing ODA when it participated in the Colombo Plan on October 6th, 1954. Since then, over five decades Japan has significantly contributed to promoting the economic and social development of developing countries, including Jamaica and other CARICOM countries, and strengthening of bilateral relations. Japan’s ODA to Jamaica mainly consist of small grant called Grant Assistance for Grass-Roots Human security projects, technical cooperation and loan aid. These types of cooperation are handled by the Embassy of Japan (EOJ), the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC). They represent "All Japan" in a collaborative effort to strengthen the strategy for development cooperation. Japan also provides assistance through international organization s such as UNDP, IDP and UNICEF by establishing Japan special funds.
