The sum is part of the Japanese government's non-refundable grant aid program, said Hirayama Tatsuo, Japanese Vice Consul General to Ho Chi Minh City.
This will be used to build more consulting rooms and buy medical equipment such as X-ray and ultrasonic machines for Long Binh Inter-communal Polyclinic and for Phu Dong Medical Station.
The aid will help improve the examination and treatment quality and ease difficulties for the local people.
Mr. Tatsuo Hirayama said at the handing over ceremony, “I feel greatly pleased and privileged to participate in this ceremony of the handing over of medical equipment we have funded to purchase for Long Binh Inter-communal Polyclinic and Phu Dong Medical Station. Today would become a memorable day for our good relations between Tien Giang Province and Japan.”
