Suriname has received US$2.7 million from the Japanese government to help solve its flooding problems. The money is intended for the purchase of drainage pumps to increase the capacity of the pumping stations that must discharge the excess water in and around Paramaribo.

Floods cause economic, environmental and health risks. The Japanese government has pledged to continue to give assistance in various areas such as disaster prevention, environment, energy, waste management and fisheries to promote resilience and prosperity in Caribbean countries.

Recently Minister Albert Ramdin of Foreign Affairs, International Business and International Cooperation, together with the Japanese ambassador Matsubara Yutaka, placed his signature under the subsidy program ‘Economic and Social Development Programme’.
