AMMAN — The government on Monday received 110 hybrid cars from the Japanese government under a 300,000,000 yen grant (around $2,940,000).

The assistance is aimed at helping Jordan fight pollution and protect the environment, according to a Japanese embassy statement.

Planning Minister Ibrahim Saif said the new eco-friendly vehicles will be distributed to 16 ministries and government agencies, replacing public vehicles with large engines to reduce fuel expenses, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
