Japan plans to offer around ¥1 billion ($9.76 million) in grant aid to Cuba for purchasing medical equipment when Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visits the country next week, a government source said Thursday.

Abe and Cuban President Raul Castro are expected to confirm during talks their intention to set up a center for training medical professionals in Cuba. The move is aimed at familiarizing Cuban doctors with Japanese medical practice and paving the way for the sale of Japanese equipment.
