A very typical ODA project by the Japanese Government.

(Contractors)
NIPPON STEEL CORPORATION
TOA CORPORATION

Total Contract Price:3,846,348,180JPY
Type of Project:Loan
---------------------------------------
http://www.jica.go.jp/activities/sch...2004hontai.pdf

In Japanese ODA, the Japanese Government loan or donate money to other developing countries' governments on the condition that the money is used for a project developed solely by Japanese contractors. Only Japanese contractors and consultants can join and bid for ODA tenders by the Japanese Government.
Therefore, those who benefit the most from those development projects are
1. Japanese general contractors and consultants
2. Local sub-contractors
3. the local people living in the area
(4. the governmental officials in the developing countries)<--often requiring bribes from Japanese contractors for smooth implementation of projects

So, those projects are not 100% out of charity. It's a kind of win-win situation for them...

And it's a good advertisement for the Japanese Government because all those buildings have Japanese flags printed on them. I think those ODA projects in developing countries help Japanese travellers welcomed all over the world. Friendship is more effective to protect one's own safety than using weapons.
