In the discussion session, the participants actively shared their views on the current issues with regard to S&T ODA and agreed on the need for building a cooperative system among the organizations. On the basis of proposed cooperation system, they are able to share the status of on-going S&T ODA projects and deliver experiences and know-how to the organizations (which are) newly involved in the S&T ODA field.

The next 9th Science & Technology ODA Forum is planned to be held on October, 2016 and continue to focus on diverse issues in regards to S&T ODA in developing countries.
