Signing for provision of equipment in post-disaster recovery, rehab

The Government of Japan formalised two grant agreements, worth $300 million Japanese Yen (approximately FJD $6 million) funding to the Fijian Government for the procurement of heavy machinery equipment for fisheries, agriculture and waterways.

The equipment will be utilised in post-disaster recovery, rehabilitation and ultimately support Fiji’s national development priorities, a Fijian Government statement said.

Fiji’s Permanent Secretary, Office of the Prime Minister and Permanent Secretary Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Yogesh Karan and, Japanese Ambassador Kawakami Fumihiro formalised the assistance during a signing at the Japanese Embassy in Suva.
