Abe says Japan will help create 3tn-plus yen in business

ASTANA, Kazakhstan -- Japan hopes to create more than 3 trillion yen ($24.6 billion) in business opportunities by aiding Central Asian development through engineering education and other steps, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Tuesday.

     "The [Japanese] public and private sectors will work together to support the development of Central Asia," Abe said, speaking at Nazarbayev University here. His five-country tour of the region kicked off last Thursday.

     The government will promote private-sector investments to develop infrastructure and nurture talent in the region, he promised. "Japan will utilize its high-quality engineering education to help train people for advanced industries," and, in so doing, help the economies overcome their dependence on resources, Abe added.

     With roads, railways and other infrastructure underdeveloped in the region, he expressed hopes that Japanese businesses can win orders. "I look forward to a day when Japanese technology, experience and know-how will be put to use," the prime minister said.
