Japan has granted US$276,266 for the construction of Banteay Pranak Secondary School building in Kampong Speu province, and of the development centre for veterans with disabilities in Banteay Meanchey province.

The grant agreements were inked recently by Japanese Ambassador to Cambodia H.E. Masahiro Mikami and groups in charge of the constructions at the Embassy of Japan here in Phnom Penh.

According to H.E. Ambassador, the school building which will cost about US$90,000 consists of six classrooms and two latrines.

To benefit some 1,800 veterans with disabilities, the construction of the development centre for veterans, he continued, will cost around US$180,000 and will be equipped with suitable water supply and sanitation system.

According to the embassy's record, since 1991, Japan has provided more than 600 development grants to Cambodia through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
