Japanese Supplemental Contribution to the MFO

For a sixth consecutive year, Japan has generously agreed to provide the MFO with supplemental funding in support of urgent needs. This year’s contribution, amounting to $1,489,363, will be used to relocate MFO Remote Site 5 inside our air terminal and to upgrade the combined facility.

Japan is the MFO’s first Donor State, providing continuous contributions to the MFO’s general operating budget since MFO FY 1989. Since FY 2015, Japan has also generously provided supplemental contributions towards MFO force protection efforts.

The MFO and the Treaty Parties, Egypt and Israel, greatly appreciate Japan’s long-standing support of the MFO. We are particularly grateful for the exceptional support provided since FY 2015 for the security and well-being of our personnel.
