Japan to provide Tk 6.9m for JUAAB

The Embassy of Japan has decided to extend grant assistance worth $66,216, equivalent to Tk6.9 million to the Japanese Universities Alumni Association in Bangladesh (JUAAB) for improving the facilities of Japanese Cultural Center.

 Japanese Ambassador to Bangladesh Iwama Kiminori signed the “Grant Contract” for the ‘Grant Assistance for Cultural Grassroots Projects (GCGP)’ project at his office, in presence of JUAAB President Prof MAM Yahia Khandoker on Monday.

Senior executive members of JUAAB also graced the occasion.

JUAAB is the association of the people who obtained their Bachelor, Master or PhD degrees from Japanese universities. JUAAB was established in 2000, on the historical occasion of the 30th anniversary of Japan’s diplomatic recognition of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh.
