Japan Provides Aid to Myanmar Welfare Association


               YANGON (Dec. 19) XINHUA - Japan will
               give 90,000 U.S. dollars to Myanmar
               welfare association in grant aid to help
               reduce maternal and infant mortality in
               Myanmar, according to a press release by
               the Japanese Embassy here Friday. 

               A contract was signed here Friday
               between Japanese ambassador to
               Myanmar Yoichi Yamaguchi and professor
