The Japanese government allocated 170 million US dollars for the reconstruction of Ukraine
The funds will be directed to implementing emergency recovery projects, particularly the reconstruction of critical infrastructure. It was reported my the Ministry of Infrastructure.
"The undoubted priority at this stage of reconstruction is the restoration of critical infrastructure necessary to ensure citizens' basic needs. This is a necessary step for returning Ukrainians to their homes and supporting economic development in the regions.
The support of our partners is extremely valuable and necessary. Thanks to our Japanese partners for their help in the implementation of restoration projects.
We expect that after the victory, we will be able to move on to the implementation of long-term investment projects quickly", commented Oleksandr Kubrakov.
The assistance will involve providing Japanese partners with goods and services necessary for recovery.
This support decision will be finalized by concluding a grant agreement with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
It will be recalled that at the beginning of January, it was announced that the Government of Japan would allocate 95 million dollars for the reconstruction of Ukraine. These funds will be sent to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) as part of a partnership agreement.
