People's Republic of Bangladesh

Activities and Results

 Since 1994, the Ministry of Justice has provided legal technical assistance, mainly to Southeast Asian countries, through technical cooperation projects of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). However, there was no special assistance for Bangladesh.
 Bangladesh has achieved high economic growth in recent years, and the number of Japanese companies entering the country is rapidly increasing, so its importance to Japan is rising. In the Basic Policy on Legal Technical Assistance revised in 2013, Bangladesh was added as one of the priority countries for support, and a comprehensive partnership was established between Japan and Bangladesh in 2014.
 Based on these circumstances, the International Cooperation Department (ICD) has surveyed Bangladesh's judicial system and carried out local surveys since 2013, and has been preparing to start legal technical assistance in Bangladesh, such as inviting the Minister of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs (equivalent to the Minister of Justice of Japan) to Japan to carry out joint research.
 Now, since fiscal year 2017, ICD has been cooperating with JICA in providing trainings in Japan for the purpose of capacity building of judicial officials with the Ministry of Justice, Judiciary and Parliamentary Affairs of Bangladesh as the implementing agency.
 The training aims to contribute to the resolution of a large number of pending cases, which is considered to be the biggest problem of the Bangladesh judiciary.
