Japan will extend ¥250 million in foreign aid to Micronesia for the purchase of industrial products from the Tohoku region, which was hit by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

Micronesia will buy items using the aid from a list of products manufactured by small firms operating in 10 prefectures, including Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima, that have been designated Tokyo as disaster-affected areas.
