JICA to fund renovation of ‘Friendship’ bridge

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has agreed to provide $30 million in grants for renovation of Chroy Changvar Bridge, with construction expected to begin in 2017, the Japan Times reported.

The bridge, which dates back to more than half a century, and also named Cambodia-Japan Friendship Bridge, was last rehabilitated in 1994 with Japanese grants.
