The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will grant grant aid up to 4,081 million with the government of the Republic of Djibouti on September 30 for the Tajura Bay Maritime Transport Capacity Enhancement Plan. A Grant Agreement (G / A) was signed.
This project will improve marine transport capabilities in Djibouti by improving ferry and berthing facilities that utilize Japan's superior ship construction technology, and will mainly contribute to the development promotion and disparity correction in the northern region. . Currently, the ferry that connects the north and south of Djibouti depends on one ship that was established through grant aid in 2009, and there are many cancellations from July to September, when the seasonal wind blows strongly. Have been forced to move in. As a result of this project, another ferry enters service on the northsouth route, and in addition to alleviating the full load of existing vessels, the ferry with higher driving performance and a quayside facility that matches the ferry will be used for a seasonal period. Is expected to promote the development of the northern region and improve the livelihoods of citizens, contributing to SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) Goal 9.
