HÀ NỘI — The Japanese embassy in Việt Nam on Thursday signed contracts to provide non-refundable aid worth over US$640,000 for eight healthcare, educational and water supply projects.
Addressing the event, Japanese Ambassador to Việt Nam Umeda Kunio said the Japanese government hoped to support the development of Việt Nam to provide a brighter future for its people.
As many as 630 projects worth around $53 million have been funded by the Japanese non-refundable assistance programme since 1992.
Hoàng Văn Quyết, chairman of Mường Giôn Commune’s People’s Committee in Sơn La Province’s Quỳnh Nhai District, thanked the Japanese Government for supporting ethnic minority groups and remote areas. He said the assistance would help improve the living and studying condition for teachers and students at Lả Giôn Boarding School, encouraging more local children to go to school. — VNS
