Exceptional Japanese Funding

Japan was the MFO’s initial Donor State; Japan has provided an annual contribution to the MFO since our Fiscal Year (FY) 1989.  On an extraordinary basis, now for the second year in a row, Japan has agreed to provide the MFO with additional funding to complete urgently needed force protection projects.
