Japan has provided the Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MFAIC) with vehicles and office equipment, equivalent to 300 million Japanese Yen (about US$2,780,000), for Cambodia’s Chairmanship of ASEAN 2022.
The handover ceremony of 39 Japanese vehicles as the first batch of this cooperation was held here at the MFAIC this morning under the presidency of H.E. Prak Sokhonn, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of MFAIC, and Japanese Ambassador to Cambodia H.E. Mikami Masahiro.
The remaining vehicles and office equipment will arrive over the next few months, said a press release of the Embassy of Japan, stressing, "the decision to provide this cooperation was made in light of the friendship between Cambodia and Japan and our strong determination to support Cambodia’s Chairmanship of ASEAN 2022 and ASEAN Centrality and Unity."
The donation is part of the Economic and Social Development Programme, it added.
Japan will continue to cooperate with the Royal Government of Cambodia for the success of Cambodia’s Chairmanship of ASEAN 2022, underlined the embassy.
