Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pledged to provide fiscal training to thirty African countries over the next three years, speaking at the Tokyo International Conference on African Development in Yokohama, south of the capital, on Thursday.

"We will choose ten priority countries each year for the next three years - a total of 30 countries and provide training for debt and risk management to Ghana and Zambia. We will send advisers on debt management and macro economic management," said Abe.

The prime minister also said that Tokyo will send agricultural specialists to help Africa boost its rice production to 56 million tonnes by 2030.
