Japan Provides Grant for Five Projects in Myanmar

The Japanese government has provided a grant of $727,387 for five projects in Myanmar under its Grant Assistance for Grassroot Human Society Projects (GGP) scheme, state-run media reported.
The GGP grant will be spent on the construction of high schools, hospitals and bridges, and building roads to facilitate transportation of agricultural produce, according to the grant contracts signed between Mikio Numata, ambassador of Japan to Myanmar, and chairmen of the committees in Myanmar for those projects.
The assistance will improve the educational, social and economic environment and further strengthen the existing relations between Myanmar and Japan, officials said.
The Japanese government provided grants for 646 grassroot projects in Myanmar under GGP scheme since 1993.
