AS Fiji continues its nation-building process in the years ahead, Japan remains committed to providing assistance for sustainable development, says the Japanese Embassy's first secretary Tomoaki Miyamoto.

Mr Miyamoto said this during the handing over of water tanks at Naqumu Village in Seaqaqa, Macuata, yesterday.

"Japan has been providi­ng continued assistance to gr­a­ssroots communiti­es in Fiji since 1990 by implementing 353 grant assistance for grassroots human security projects with the total value exceeding $US23 million ($F46.3m)," he said.

He said the project would strengthen the friendship between the governments of Fiji and Japan.
