On April 6, 2009, Zhao Jianping, a representative of the China-Africa Development Fund (CADFund), and Rama Sithanen, the Prime Minister of Mauritius, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) at a joint working session regarding a potential MUR 25 billion loan for the development of roads and bridges. The loan proceeds were to be used to fund the East-West Corridor, the ring road at Port Louis, a bus way, and the Harbour bridge. In 2011, the Government of Mauritius reported that this project was underway, and it was expected to be completed by 2015. It is unclear whether CADFund ever signed a final financing agreement for these projects.
