Aid, Aeon on agenda for Japan

The Japanese government will offer more than $143 million in grant aid and loans to Cambodia when Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida visits later this month, according to a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

According to the statement, Kishida will ink a number of agreements during a three-day official visit from June 29 to July 1.

He will also join Prime Minister Hun Sen for the official opening of the Japanese-owned Aeon Mall.

Grant aid of $8.3 million for the expansion of lower secondary schools will be offered, the statement says.

A $135 million loan to help finance three infrastructure projects, including improvements to National Road 5 and irrigation and drainage in southwest Phnom Penh, will also be signed.

Kishida will pay a courtesy call on King Norodom Sihamoni and hold official talks with Hun Sen and Foreign Minister Hor Namhong during the visit.
