Philippine and Japanese officials exchanged notes on three non-project grant aids worth P1.4 bilion on the sidelines of the 7th Meeting of the Philippines-Japan Joint Committee on Infrastructure Development and Economic Cooperation held on Thursday in Osaka.

The Department of Foreign Affairs, in a statement, said Philippine Ambassador Jose C. Laurel V and Japanese Ambassador Koji Haneda exchanged notes on Japanese government assistance for three socioeconomic development projects: two for Bangsamoro and one for the expansion of the Philippines’ railway system.
