    Japan to provide 94 mln USD to Cambodia despite quake impact
    14:00, March 15, 2011

    The government of Japan on Tuesday signed up to provide a total grant aid of 94 million U.S. dollars to Cambodia for social and economic development though the country was severely hit by the massive earthquake and tsunami on March 11.

    The exchange of notes for the grant was signed between Cambodian Foreign Minister Hor Namhong and Masafumi Kuroki, Japanese ambassador to Cambodia, presided over by Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen.

    According to the media release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the aid will be used to implement three projects: the flood and drainage improvement in Phnom Penh (45 million U.S. dollars), replacement and expansion of water distribution system in provincial capitals (33.66 million U. S. dollars), and improvement of equipment for demining activities (15.83 million U.S. dollars).

    The Friday’s catastrophic earthquake in Japan, measuring 9.0 magnitudes on the Richter scale, has claimed 2,414 lives and left 3,118 others missing in Japan by 8:00 a.m. local time, said the Japanese National Police Agency.

    Simple question: Considering Japanese’s position as foreign aide leadership in Cambodia(before China came along; which fairly recent in term of aide),Why Hun Sen does not response to Japan’s natural disaster like he did to China’s natural disaster?

    Maybe we should be thankful. Perhaps they believed in doing good. They provided financial aide to srok Khmer with no string attached in the past. Am i naive for having such belief? I was told that the temple that was build in Khao i dang refugee camp was done with the financial aide from the Japanese. They also took in many of our refugees as well. One of my neighbor and his family that was in Chunbori with us migrated to Japan. There was also a Japanese school in Chunbori’s camp they where they learned Japanese.

    “Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR) has also provided $100,000 in emergency relief and agreed to set up a national committee to raise more funds and to be ready to dispatch personnel.”

    “As for Thailand, the world’s largest rice exporter, it has promised 15,000 tonnes of rice and over $6.5 million assistance.”

    “Vietnam, meanwhile, has decided to provide Japan with $200,000 and ready to send a medical team upon request.”
