Japan to finance more classrooms in Vanuatu

9:59 pm on 2 March 2010

Japan is to again finance the construction of five double classrooms in Vanuatu's primary schools this year.

The Government of Japan has made a series of gestures to Vanuatu's education sector since 1996.

The First Secretary of the Suva-based Japanese Embassy, Yukihiro Tsujimura, was in Vanuatu last week, and as well as signing a new aid agreement, he opened new classrooms in Pentecost and Santo.

Japan also provides aid assistance in other sectors, such as health and the environment.
