Government of Japan to allocate about USD 2.8 mln to Georgia to buy medical equipment

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to Georgia, UEHARA Tadaharu and Minister of Finance of Georgia, Ivane Matchavariani signed the Exchange of Notes for provision of medical equipment to Georgia.

The Government of Japan provided medical equipment equivalent to 300 million yen or USD 2.8 million. Specific types of equipment, including defibrillator and electrocardiograph, are under discussion and will be finally determined during the following consultations with the Government of Georgia.

The medical assistance by the Government of Japan is not temporary aid against COVID 19, but aims to use this unprecedented pandemic crisis in order to contribute to Georgia’s medium and long term socio-economic development, including enhancement of medical system.
