Latin American Region
In the Latin American region, destruction of valuable ecosystems in Amazon and other areas, and air pollution and water contamination in cities have become increasingly serious problems. We will thus give high priority to①assistance for environmental protection projects. In this region, wide economic and income disparities exist among regions inside individual countries. We will therefore place high priority on ②assistance relating tothe construction of economic and social infrastructure to rectify such gaps, ③human resource development, restoration of employment and safety, and ④poverty reduction. Furthermore, promotion of regional integration is believed to be the key to future development of an economic society in this region. For this reason, we will place high priority on ⑤assistance to regional integration initiatives. When providing such assistance, we will assign importance to coordination of efforts with international organizations, bilateral aid organizations and other stakeholders in view of the specific needs and actual conditions of each country as well as the trends towards regional integration. In addition, we will energetically take on intellectual cooperation and technical assistance.

Address by Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi on the Latin American and Caribbean Policies- Toward a New Japan-Latin America and Caribbean Partnership – (Extract)(Venue: a luncheon meeting hosted by the Governor of Sao Paulo)September 15, 2004
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Divided by the Pacific Ocean but facing each other, East Asia and Latin America are the most dynamically developing regions in the world.
To strengthen our efforts in tapping into the "great potential" for our mutual benefit, we need to follow the two guiding principles of "Cooperation" and "Exchange.“
<- Cooperation ->
The first principle is "Cooperation." It consists of two pillars; "reactivating the economic relationship" and "addressing challenges of the international community."
To realize the latent potential of Japan and Latin America, the most important issue is reactivating our economic relationship.
Latin America possesses the dynamism of development, a market of 530 million people, a wide expanse of land, rich natural resources, and an excellent, young workforce.
On the other hand, Japan has experience in developing an economy based on democracy and the marketplace, the world\'s second largest economy, an abundant workforce, capital, and cutting-edge technology.
I am confident that if Japan and Latin America, who possess such complementary characteristics, decide to cooperate, it will lead to mutual benefits for both parties.
Energy, minerals, and edible resources are indispensable to making possible the sustained growth of the world economy. Endowed with energy and rich natural resources, Latin America continues to grow in importance.
To my country, which has few natural resources, securing a stable supply of resources in the mid to long term is an issue of grave importance.
During the 1960s and the 1970s, Japan invested heavily in various sectors of Brazil, including ① iron manufacturing, ② pulp, ③ aluminum, and ④ agricultural ventures, as part of a national project to develop Brazilian resources. Many Japanese enterprises moved to Brazil and contributed to the country\'s economic development.
I also want to highlight the Initiative for the Integration of Regional Infrastructure in South America, the Plan Puebla-Panama, and other initiatives being promoted in both South and Central America in promoting the unification of Latin America.
Rugged mountains and lush green forests divide Latin America into large expanses. If infrastructure projects could join the region north to south and east to west, then both the promotion of regional integration and the development of the entire region would more quickly accelerate.
Recognizing that the maintenance of infrastructure is an important postulate of economic and social development, my country is distributing approximately $4.6 billion of cooperation for Latin American countries in that same area.
In order to make the sustainable prosperity of the world community possible, we also need to strike a balance between economic development and protecting the environment.
Through the Three R\'s--Reduce, Reuse, Recycle--I hope to build a sound material-cycle society on a global level. Global warming is also a problem of great magnitude and urgency, one that cannot be set aside, even for an instant.
In December of this year, the 10th session of the Conference of the Parties to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP10) will be held in Buenos Aires, where Latin America\'s leadership will be sought and highly valued. I hope we can work together to achieve early entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol, so we can leave a better earth for the next generation.
