Japan’s Assistance Policy for the Federated States of Micronesia

The Federated State of Micronesia (FSM) has such development challenges as its scattered islands over the vast ocean, limited domestic markets, and geographically long distances from international markets. While the FSM relies on the budget support from the United States under the Compact of Free Association, which consists of about 25% of the Government revenue, that support will be completed in 2023. Thus, the FSM needs to establish its budgetary independence by such means as achieving efficient expenditure, structural reforms including tax reforms and industrial development.  It is important for Japan to assist the FSM's self-reliant and sustainable development, and continue cooperation to further strengthen bilateral relations between Japan and the FSM.
