The Japanese government has issued a grant worth Rp3.37 billion to improve education and health facilities in several Indonesian provinces including South Sumatra, Yogyakarta, West Java and Maluku.

“The grant is issued through grassroots assistance for human security in the first period of the budget year 2019,” Japanese Ambassador to Indonesia Masafumi Ishii stated after signing a document on the grant at the Japanese Embassy in Jakarta on Friday.

He said the grant, which constitutes the Japanese government’s annual program, aims to help partner countries including Indonesia to improve the quality of public life.

“In our view, education and health are the two sectors that can directly contribute to improving the quality of public life,” he stated.
