April 20, 2017
On April 19th, Ambassador of Japan to Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) Kazuya Ogawa attended a handover ceremony of Non-Project Grant Aid for Provision of Japanese Next-Generation Vehicle together with Minister of Civil Affairs Adil Osmanovic in Sarajevo.
Under this Grant Aid assistance amounting to 500 million Japanese Yen (approx. 7.2million KM) in total, the Government of Japan donated 40 clean-diesel vehicles and 80 hybrid vehicles to 120 social and welfare institutions in BiH Federation, RS and Brcko District. In this ceremony, 80 hybrid vehicles were handed over to BiH. The other 40 clean-diesel vehicles were already delivered last October.
The vehicles will be used to improve services of the social and welfare institutions such as transportation of their users including people with special needs and elderly people, and visits of their employees to houses of their users. In addition, these hybrid vehicles, together with clean-diesel vehicles that dramatically cut emission of toxic material unlike usual diesel vehicles, contribute to protection of environment in BiH.
