More than 818 million JPY (10.1 million USD), of which 698 million JPY is non-refundable aid from the Japanese Government, has been spent on a project to upgrade seven small-scale reservoirs in the central province of Quang Ngai.

The upgraded facilities include Tri Binh and An Hoi in Binh Son district, Mach Dieu and Hoc Mit in Mo Duc district, and Duc Pho district’s An Tho, Hoc Nghi and Huan Phong.

Provincial leaders said that the project completed as scheduled after nearly two years of implementation. It will reduce the risk of dam breach, improve management capacity and ensure water for 846 hectares of agricultural land.
