Japan to send building assessment experts to Taiwan.
The nine experts will be dispatched at the request of Taiwan, according to the officials. Japan sent six such experts to Taiwan between Sept. 27 and last Friday.
The nine, including those from the Building Research Institute of the Construction Ministry, are also expected to advise victims living in makeshift houses by imparting their experience from the Great Hanshin Earthquake that hit western Japan in 1995.
The magnitude-7.7 quake that hit central Taiwan before dawn Sept. 21 killed more than 2,250 people and injured almost 9,000. More than 100,000 people were left homeless.
