Japan Preparing to Finance Vietnamese Patrol Vessels

The Japanese government is preparing to offer financial assistance to Vietnam to support the construction of new patrol vessels for the country’s coast guard, the Vietnam government announced on 8 July.

Following meetings in Hanoi between Vietnamese Deputy Defence Minister Nguyen Chi Vinh and his visiting counterpart Akinori Eto, the Vietnamese government outlined a plan to purchase patrol vessels funded by Japan’s official development assistance (ODA) programme.

The ODA, Japan’s official aid policy since 1992, is aimed at enhancing international security.

The government statement said: “Japan is completing the legal procedures to provide ODA for the Vietnam government [and the programme] to build patrol boats for the law enforcement forces of Vietnam.”
