The Japanese Consulate in Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday signed a grant agreement worth more than US$208,000 to build a school and provide medical equipment in two Vietnam southern provinces.
The grant includes more than $108,000 worth of 20 function recovery tools for Tan Chau General Hospital in the capital town Tan Chau of An Giang Province, and the rest for building a primary school campus in the southernmost Ca Mau Province.
Around 370 children are expected to benefit from the campus project, which will include six classrooms and accessory constructions.
Harumitsu Hida, Japanese Consul General, said the funds are parts of Japan's official development assistance to Vietnam this year.
Since 1995, Japan has provided Vietnam more than $8 million of ODA funds for 113 healthcare, education and agriculture projects in 26 southern provinces.
