26 November 2010  H.E Mr. Yasuo Takase, Ambassador of Japan to the Kingdom of Tonga, officially opened the new upgraded water supply for Fatai Village at 11:00am on Friday, November 26th 2010.

The Government of Japan, under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project (GGP), funded a total of US$93,811.00 (T$169,000) to cover the material (pump units (solar & diesel) 5,000 gallon tank, pipes, pump house and fence) and construction cost for "The Project for Upgrading of Water Supply System for Fatai Village." The construction work was done by ST Plumbing Services.

The Fatai Village Water Committee applied for Japan's assistance to upgrade its problematic old water supply in August 2009, two months later the Government of Japan approved to assist their application. The old water supply of Fatai Village was established in the 1960's.

Japan's GGP is specifically designed to address basic needs at the grassroots level which include water supply, health, basic education, vocational training, sanitary environment and rural infrastructure.

Japan is committed to assist the improvement of living standards and welfare of the people in the Kingdom of Tonga, which is in line with its Official Development Assistance (ODA) policy. It is hoped that this assistance will contribute to further strengthen the friendly ties between the Governments and the people of Japan and the Kingdom of Tonga.


Issued by the: Embassy of Japan Office, Nuku'alofa, 2010.
