Japan donates airport equipment

Airport safety and security equipment donated by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has been installed in Bagan-Nyaung U airport, according to the Ministry of Transport. 

In an effort to improve airport safety and security, Japan donated the equipment to the civil aviation department. 

Both governments agreed to the handover of equipment in 2013. 

The JICA installed DVOR/DME for airport safety and security at Bagan-Nyaung U airport. Under the Japanese aid project, equipment worth 1.2 billion yen will be installed in Yangon, Mandalay, Nyaung U, Heho, Thandwe and Dawei airports.
