In a show of solidarity and commitment to Ukraine's reconstruction after the devastation caused by Russia's invasion in February 2022, Japan's Prime Minister, Mr. Kishida Fumio, recently held a summit telephone talk with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The leaders agreed to convene the Japan-Ukraine Conference for the promotion of Economic Reconstruction in Tokyo on February 19, 2024, with a focus on integrating efforts from both the public and private sectors.

To kickstart the recovery, Japan is set to provide biofuel manufacturing technology, to develop a new industry in Ukraine. The plan, to be presented at the upcoming conference, is part of Japan's broader strategy to support Ukraine without engaging in arms exports, in accordance with its pacifist Constitution. Biofuels, which are produced from crops and livestock waste, are environmentally friendly and can be employed for power generation, aligning with global decarbonization efforts. Japanese firms are anticipated to pledge their support at the conference, offering renewable energy production technology and related equipment.

Japan's support extends beyond biofuels; it includes consideration for providing prosthetic legs using 3D printing technology and advanced treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder. Additionally, plans are in place to introduce remote medical care and smart farming technologies to Ukraine.

The Japan-Ukraine Conference in February is expected to solidify partnerships and collaborations between the two nations, leveraging private investments in energy, medical care, and infrastructure. As the Japanese government continues to survey Ukraine's needs, it is clear that the assistance goes beyond short-term relief, focusing on sustainable, long-term support for Ukraine's journey towards reconstruction and revitalization.
