The Japanese government said Wednesday it will extend loans totaling up to ¥338.25 billion ($3.17 billion) to Bangladesh for seven projects, most of which will be building infrastructure to support its economic growth.

Of the total, Japan will offer as much as ¥89.02 billion for constructing a railway bridge across the Jamuna River running in the middle of Bangladesh and ¥80 billion yen for expanding terminals at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka in response to growth in passenger and cargo demand.
