Ogata talk on Dec 1, 2006

I was lucky to get invited by Lucy from Metropolis to join a talk at the FCCJ given by Sadako Ogata.

She was very charming - even in the not so exciting talk about the creation of a new JICA, which would be a merger of JICA and JBIC. This is going to allow for longer-term planning and more integrated program development. I do believe that she aims to work towards more people centered community development projects. Given the size and history of both government agencies it is hard to think that she is not facing resistance and frustration in changing the bureaucracy.

all the ideas sounds great - implementation however may take longer than anyone expects.
