Japanese to donate medical equipment

The Japanese government will provide $18 million worth of medical equipment and supplies to the Ministry of Health to help the Kingdom fight Covid-19.

It will also offer nearly $23 million in financial grants to support education and health in Cambodia, according to an announcement from the Ministry of Economy and Finance.

Japanese Ambassador to Cambodia Masahiro Mikami confirmed the donation of equipment during a working meeting with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Finance Aun Pornmoniroth on Wednesday.

“The supplies and medical equipment will soon be coming to Cambodia,” Mikami said.

He said that the contributions were in line with the spirit of the ASEAN Plus Three Summit on Covid-19 which was held on April 14.

The Japanese government will continue to provide technical assistance and financial grants, including concessional loans.

“In the near future, Japan plans to provide financial grants for another two projects totalling $22.73 million to support Cambodia’s education and health sectors,” Mikami said.

Pornmoniroth expressed his gratitude to the government and people of Japan for always supporting Cambodia’s efforts.
