  Most of the technical cooperation projects have been implemented through Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The Bureau has played a primary role in the projects for more than 25 years and contributed greatly to the statistical capacity building of the NSOs and the improvement of Population Census, Economic Census, and so on in the developing countries.
