Shipbuilding projects in developing countries through ODA

In developing countries, people need various types of working ships, patrol boats, inland water/river ferries, etc. for transporting people and daily necessities. But at the same time, the ability to plan ships that meet the needs and the funds and facilities to build them are lacking. We support the preparation and implementation of ship building projects in developing countries in such cases.

At the time of ship construction, we support the selection of shipyards, supervise the construction, etc., as a consultant for organizations in developing countries.
