Description

On July 13, 2006, the Chinese Government donated 100 computers to the Government of Zimbabwe (See: China donates 100 computers to Zimbabwe). On this day, Zhang Xianyi, Chinese Ambassador to Zimbabwe, handed over the computers to the Zimbabwean Government in Harare. An agreement of the donation was signed between the two countries in July of 2005 during Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's state visit to China. Out of the 100 computers, 90 are PC computers made by Great Wall, a known Chinese company, and 10 are laptops made by Lenovo, the largest IT producer in China and the third largest in the world (See: China donates 100 computers to Zimbabwe). Zimbabwe's Minister of Finance, H.M. Murerwa, was also present at the handover ceremony (See: China donates 100 computers to Zimbabwe). The value of this donation is unclear.
