JBIC is one of the instruments of Japan's official development assistance (ODA), which contributes to the execution of the country's foreign policy. JBIC recognizes the extreme importance of such a system from the standpoint of operational soundness and appropriateness.


In Japan, the Financial Services Agency (金融庁, Kin'yūchō) is responsible for overseeing banking services in order to ensure the stability of the financial system of Japan. Bank of Japan (BOJ) is not a regulatory authority under the Banking Act, but it conducts on-site examinations in order to maintain a safe and sound financial system. These examinations are based on bilateral agreements between the BOJ and financial institutions that have current accounts with it under the Bank of Japan Act.
