El Salvador and Japan strengthen ties of friendship.

The friendship and cooperation relations that unite El Salvador with Japan continue to strengthen, according to Ambassador Ariyoshi Katsuhide.

The Japanese embassy in El Salvador organized the celebration of Japan’s National Day on February 22, an event in which the vice president of the republic, Félix Ulloa, and the president of the Legislative Assembly, Ernesto Castro, participated.

Katsuhide expressed that his country sees El Salvador as a friendly nation with which it will be willing to cooperate on projects of social benefit.

Part of the cooperation that Japan provides to El Salvador includes the Gerardo Barrios Peripheral, which will improve road connectivity in the eastern zone, and the construction of modern infrastructure in the western zone.

Furthermore, student scholarship programs have been promoted for Salvadorans who wish to travel to Japan to further their education.

Vice President Félix Ulloa thanked the Japanese ambassador on behalf of President Nayib Bukele and the Salvadoran people for the valuable contributions they have made and that have allowed more development for the country.

For his part, Ernesto Castro reiterated his congratulations to the Japanese people for the commemoration of their national day and the birth anniversary of Emperor Naruhito, which in Japanese tradition represents the beginning of a new era with the change of each emperor.
