A signing ceremony of two grant contracts funded by the Japanese Government for the projects of construction of primary schools in northern provinces of Quang Ninh and Nam Dinh was held on Dec. 28 in Hanoi .

Under the contract, over 190,000 USD will be used to build new primary schools in Xuan Son and Yen Tho communes in order to clear the shiftlearning and provide children with longer learning hours.

The two schools are under poor conditions because of time and natural disasters and need upgrading as the number of classrooms failed to meet studying demand of the children.

Xuan Son Primary School , located in Dong Trieu district of Quang Ninh was built in 1964 and Yen Tho Primary School, based in Y Yen district of Nam Dinh, was constructed in 1975./.
