Hoi An city in the central province of Quang Nam and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) on March 26 signed an agreement on supporting the restoration of Cau (Bridge) Pagoda.
Under the agreement, JICA will support Hoi An by sending experts to the city to help restore the pagoda. The activity may be adjusted depending on COVID-19 situation in Vietnam and Hoi An. All arising issues will be settled by both sides.
Alongside, JICA will also help increase local capacity in preserving Hoi An Ancient Town’s areas by providing the city with technical support.
Addressing the signing ceremony, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Van Tan highlighted the significance of the Japanese support in the restoration of the site. He proposed that the two sides promptly finalise necessary procedures to receive Japanese experts soon, so that restoration activities can start in mid-2022.
