"On behalf of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), I sincerely congratulate USP on its 50th anniversary this year, and I am very glad to participate in and witness the USP's celebration through the organisation of this two-day symposium as one of the first official functions in the year of 50th anniversary. Congratulations to USP, its member countries and its staff for reaching this milestone," she said.
