Fiji Expert Dispatch

Last year, JICA dispatched a fisheries expert, Dr Shigeru Shimura, to work in Fiji, Kiribati and Tuvalu for 2 years. This is the first time in Oceania that a JICA expert, dispatched under bilateral assistance, has worked for multiple countries. This scheme (introduced in 1996) is one of a variety of initiatives to render aid more effective by adopting a regional approach to problems affecting multiple neighbour countries.

Fisheries is one of the most important and promising sectors for social and economic development in the Pacific islands countries. This sector has already benefited considerably from Japan's development assistance to date. However, difficulties remain in the formulation of appropriate projects and the monitoring and aftercare of ongoing or completed projects.

Recognising this, the Goverments o Fiji, Kiribati and Tuvalu requested a fisheries adviser who would support these activities, upgrade institutions and human resources, and promote further development of fisheries. JICA dispatched fisheries development adviser Dr Shigeru Shimura to establish the position.

This is Dr Shimura's second assignment to Fiji. From 1993-1994, he was the fisheries project formulation adviser for JICA Fiji. Since joining JICA in 1987, Dr Shimura has worked for 11 countries in Oceania. He says of his first 10 years in Oceania that they were "quite busy days and I felt like a migrating skipjack in the South Pacific".

Under this new form of expert dispatch, Dr Shimura is based in Fiji-stationed at the Fisheries Division, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forests - and
works closely with counterparts in all 3 countries. His assignment covers the following areas in fisheries:

*field studies & advisory work on projects;
*monitoring & evaluating Japanese government funded projects;
*guidance & training of counterparts;
*advising recipient governments on assistance;
*formulating projects & programmes for grant aid & technical cooperation.

In carrying out the above activities, Dr Shimura works closely with the OFCF (Overseas Fisheries Cooperation Fund, Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry & Fisheries, Japan) and other fisheries agencies and advisers in the region. Together with his counterparts in Tuvalu and Kiribati, the OFCF advisers have assisted him with current and post project monitoring, project formulation and requests . This included gathering information for the dispatch of a tuna longline expert and a refrigeration expert to Kiribati. While in Tuvalu, one problem that the fisheries advisers and counterparts discussed was the disposal of damaged fisheries training vessels, and unused and rusted machines donated under fisheries grant aid.

In Fiji, Dr Shimura is conducting the same type of bilateral work together with regional activities. Currently he is working with JICA Fiji staff and FAO Chief Technical Adviser. Mr Tanaka, to develop ideas for aquaculture development in Oceania. Another project being planned is the JICA Fisheries Assistance Database.

Dr Shimura is also promoting the idea of a 3rd country training course in Oceania for fisheries development planning. He suggests that the Marine Studies Centre of USP (established in March 1998 under Japan's fisheries grant aid) would be a good facility for the said training if implemented. While on home leave recently, Dr Shimura discussed this idea with JICA Headquarters along with the possibility of formulating a project-type technical cooperation project at the USP Marine Studies Centre. Both projects would be in coordination with Fiji Fisheries Division. He also discussed ideas for other new projects including a fisheries training project in FSM.

The main purpose for the recent home leave was to give 4 lectures at the Universiry of Tokyo (where Dr Shimura is a part-time lecturer) on fisheries development in Oceania. Dr Shimura says the students are highly interested in lectures based on actual field experiences and are keen to know what and how Japan's ODA projects are being implemented in developing countries.

On returning from his home leave Dr Shimura planned to hold a meeting in Suva with counterparts from Fiji, Kiribati and Tuvalu, and work on the project ideas and requests discussed in talks with JICA and OFCF Headquarters.

Japanese Expatriate Returns in Ashes


When Japanese expatriate Shigeru Shimura took up his first posting with the Japan International Co-op Agency (JICA) based in Suva in 1993 he immediately fell in love with Fiji.
So much so that two months after he died in Panama in May this year, his wife Etsuko and 13-year-old daughter, Chihiro, are back visiting old friends and places, with a little portion of Mr Shimura's ashes.
With his ashes, they hope with the weather permitting, they will be able to ride out to sea on horseback in Nasese and take a swim before sprinkling the ashes. This, in their view, is something Mr Shimura would have loved because during his stay here, as members of the Suva Pony Club, he and his family spent a considerable amount of time there with horses. What a remarkable way to remember someone in a land far away from home.

Born in Tokyo, Japan, Mr Shimura attended University and graduated with a PHD in Agriculture. He managed to secure a position in JICA and never regretted that decision, because it gave him and his family the opportunity to travel the world. Mr Shimura was posted out to countries in Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific. His first posting to the Pacific was to the Solomon Islands for a two and half year contract with Mrs Shimura, and two daughters Chihiro and Asuna who is currently at University in Japan. In 1993, he was posted as specialist/consultant for all Pacific countries based at the JICA office in Suva.

"We enjoyed every minute of our stay here in Fiji. The people were great, we loved the environment and he (Mr Shimura) was able to do a lot for the pacific islands in terms of projects and seeking funds," said Mrs Shimura, reliving their earlier days in Fiji as a happy family.
"We made so many friends and loved visiting places," she said. When they returned to Japan, Mr Shimura had become so fond of Fiji that he tried in every way possible to grab a second chance of coming back to work here. Luck came his way in 1998 when he was told to return to Fiji and carry on the same work. The Shimura family stayed here until after the coup in 2001 before returning to Japan.
"During our second stay here we made even more friends and our children attended Stella Marist Primary School. In fact my daughter (Chihiro) will be visiting the school and her school mates before we leave for Japan on Sunday," Mrs Shimura said,

Mrs Shimura said her husband was a very hardworking person and loved nature and he enjoyed working out of Japan. And in most places that he worked he made a lot of friends and was able to get his country's assistance for newly discovered projects. This year, Mr. Shimura traveled abroad at least four times, attached to different countries in the Caribbean.

Before the Iraqi war he was posted to Panama for a four-month contract attached its Fisheries Department. His family was to join him later.
Unfortunately two months after settling in, Mr Shimura suffered a massive heart attack on May 31st and died. He was 52 years old.
"After finishing work everyday he would exercise way before having his dinner. On this particular day he was doing some running on the exercise machine when he suffered the attack. Doctors and medical people at the scene did all they could to revive him but they failed.
"But I was happy when they told me that he died a painless death. He just had the attack and died on the spot. He looked so peaceful," a tearful Mrs Shimura said. Mrs Shimura said they have a lot of good memories of the man who was a kind and loving husband and father. "It is the summer holiday for my daughter so we just wanted to come back to Fiji and visit all our wonderful friends and the wonderful places.

There have been a lot of tears shed. Actually we have always considered Fiji our second home. And that is the reason why we decided to bring a portion of our loving and caring husband and father's ashes back to the place he so dearly loved," she said,
Since arriving last Sunday, the mother and daughter had dinners with friends and families who were shocked to hear of Mr Shimura's death. And they have never failed to taste once again Fiji's traditional drink, the kava. When Sunday caught up with them they were at the Pony Club, a place they often frequented with their dad.
Mrs Shimura says this is not the last time they will be visiting Fiji. They in fact are considering settling down here.
