Team Leader / Industrial Park Development 



The Government of Japan has been promoting the regional development through Four Parties’ Consultative Meeting among Israel, Japan, Jordan and Palestine and supporting the economic independence of Palestine as well as mutual trust building since the initiative for “Peace and Prosperity Corridor” was proposed in 2006. JICA has assisted capacity development of PIEFZA (Palestinian Industrial Estates and Free Zones Authority) since 2007, which is responsible Jericho Agro-Industrial Park (JAIP) as the flagship project of the initiative. Up to the end of December 2018, 32 lease agreements were signed, and 13 companies already started operation at Phase I area (11.5 ha). Based on this progress, Japanese Minister of Foreign Affairs, H.E. Mr. Kohno declared in September 2017 that Japan would upgrade “Peace and Prosperity Corridor” initiative.

This project assists to 1) review the legal framework for effective development of industrial park, 2) revise Business Plan of the developer of JAIP and implement the revised plan and 3) provide sustainable Business Advisory Service (BAS) to Micro, Small and Medium industries, so that investment in JAIP would increase and economic development lead by the private sector would be realized.
