The government has decided to provide yen loans of up to 40 billion yen in official development assistance to Vietnam for its space exploration program, The Yomiuri Shimbun has learned.
It would be the first time Japan's ODA would be allocated for space development. The loans of between 35 billion yen and 40 billion yen will reportedly be spent on three projects--an Earth-based space center, two observation satellites and the training of engineers.
