On May 24, 2000 in Kigali, Rwanda, Andre Bumaya of the Rwandan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Cooperation, and Shi Guangsheng, the Chinese Minister of Commerce and Cooperation, signed a memorandum of understanding for a 20 million RMB grant. This funding would go toward the establishment of an irrigation scheme in Bugeresa Province of Kigali Rural Prefecture, as well as a feasibility study for a rail link between Kigali and Isaka dry port in northern Tanzania (see Project ID #1843), and the construction of a road in Kigali (see Project ID #17238). It is unclear how this funding was allocated between the three projects. A groundbreaking ceremony was held on July 9, 2007.
