Training for Provided Excavators at Pohnpei Transportation Authority
September 29, 2016
Ambassador Horie attended the training with Pohnpei States Governor Peterson. Later, he visited U Municipality and observed how the excavator was actually operated. The 35t gigantic excavator scooped large amount of dead coral from the sea and smoothly loaded them on land. The powerful and quick move of the excavator made all the observers at the site impressed.
Mr. Swingly Poll, the technician from PTA mentioned that it used to take much effort and time to gather coral from the sea, which was used to fix and maintain the road, but it would be much easier to do it with the newly procured excavator. He also conveyed his gratitude to Ambassador Horie about Japan’s continuous cooperation for FSM’s economic and social development.
