There will be no change with the aid projects being implemented in Myanmar although Japan met with the worst earthquake and Tsunami currently, a local weekly quoted an official of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) as reporting Wednesday.

Yasuyuki Sato, JICA Assistant Representative, told the Popular News on Tuesday that however, it is too early to say that under the present situation if the disaster in Japan could impact on the implementation of the projects done with the aid of JICA in the future.

JICA began involved with its aid programs in Myanmar 1981 and has carried out 24 projects in 11 cities, according to the agency' s 2010 figures.

Meanwhile, Chairman of the Garment Entrepreneurs Association U Myint Soe was also quoted as saying that it is also hard to estimate the impact on Myanmar's garment market since Japan takes up 70 percent of Myanmar's garment order.
