Japanese Bilateral Aid:

In a move likely to be the first for a Japanese insurer, Zenrosai is to
help develop insurance in West Africa by providing direct assistance to
the trade union movement of Ghana. It will send Hiroshi Okamura,
ICMIF regional adviser, to Ghana for a year or two beginning
January 1998 to support the development of co-operative insurance
for popularly based organisations in the country.
