Japan pledges ¥1.5B Marawi aid


After China, it’s now Japan’s turn to send heavy equipment to Mindanao.

The Japanese government has pledged 1.5 billion yen aid for the reconstruction of Marawi a month after President Rodrigo Duterte declared the city free from Maute terrorists.

In a statement, the Department of Finance said the Philippines and Japan will sign the deal for rehabilitation projects for the war-torn city, with Tokyo offering the grant to the Department of Public Works and Highways.

The money, which is equivalent to P676 million, will come in the form of “heavy equipment and machineries” for the reconstruction efforts, which include bulldozers, excavators, and dump trucks.
