政府、開発協力大綱の改定検討 ODA拡充、経済安保反映へ

 政府が、対外援助の基本方針を定めた「開発協力大綱」を改定する検討に入ったことが16日、分かった。覇権主義的な動きを強める中国や新型コロナウイルスの世界的大流行など、変化が激しい国際環境に対応した対外支援を行うのが狙い。年内に見直し作業に入り、来年中の改定を目指す。
 現行の開発協力大綱は、災害救助や復興といった非軍事分野での他国軍支援などを可能にするため、政府開発援助(ODA)大綱を2015年に改めたもの。政府は「策定からかなり時間がたち、世界情勢も変わっている」(外務省幹部)としており、ODA拡充や経済安全保障を盛り込む方針だ。(2022/05/16-18:17)

Japan to Revise Development Cooperation Charter


The Japanese government is considering revising its Development Cooperation Charter, which spells out the basic policy on foreign aid, informed sources said Monday.
   Japan hopes to update its foreign aid in response to the rapidly changing international environment, marked by China's increasingly hegemonic activities and the novel coronavirus pandemic.
   The government will start work to amend the charter by year-end, aiming to realize the revision within next year.
   The government released the charter in 2015 by revising its previous Official Development Assistance Charter, in order to make it possible to provide support to foreign militaries in nonmilitary fields, such as disaster relief and reconstruction.
   "It's been quite some time since the compilation (of the current charter), and the global situation has changed," a senior Foreign Ministry official said.
