The Japanese government will provide the southern provinces of An Giang and Ca Mau with non-refundable assistance worth 208,331 USD to upgrade hospital and school infrastructure.

The Japanese Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City hosted the signing ceremony for the assistance on March 20.

According to Japanese Consulate General Harumitsu Hida, the assistance will help provide 23 items of medical and rehabilitation equipment for Tan Chau General Hospital in Tan Chau town, An Giang province with the aim of improving infrastructure of the hospital’s rehabilitation ward.

Once implemented, the project will support local people with disabilities and the elderly.

In Ca Mau province’s Thoi Binh district, the assistance will support a project to build new classes for the Thoi Binh C primary school.

Harumitsu Hida said he hopes that this project will bring a safe and spacious study environment for local pupils.-VNA
