December 14 -- The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has signed a 18.732 billion Japanese Yen loan agreement with the Government of the Philippines to further boost maritime safety and enhance the capabilities of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG).

The ODA loan project involves the construction of ten 40-meter Multi-Role Response Vessels (MRRVs) that is set to augment the Philippine Coast Guard Fleet operations. The said MRRVs are expected to contribute to maritime safety, maritime law enforcement, monitoring, pollution control, disaster response, and among others. Advanced shipbuilding technologies from Japan will be adopted in the construction of the vessels. Further, the project would also involve human resource development of PCG to improve skills in operating and maintaining the MRRVs.

"This initiative combines enhancing the Philippine capability on search and rescue responsibilities with disaster response and maritime safety. Since the Philippines is an archipelago, maritime safety is critical to the country's socio-economic development," said Takahiro Sasaki, JICA Chief Representative in the Philippines.

Vessel movement analysis by Jane’s via the IHS Markit’s AISLive portal on 2 March indicates that the platform, which will be in service as BRP Cape San Agustin with pennant number 4408, departed Tokyo Bay on 23 February, and has now arrived in Manila Bay.

Cape San Agustin joins six existing MRRVs that were commissioned by the PCG between October 2016 and November 2017. The vessels were ordered under a government programme known as the Maritime Safety Capability Improvement Project for the PCG (Phase II).
