Description

On 15 April 2002, the Chinese Ambassador signed an economic and technical cooperation agreement (ETCA) granting 30 million RMB to the Government of Sudan for the International Conference Hall Construction Project (see Factiva source). Then, in January 2004, the Chinese Government also loaned RMB 30 million for this project (see Project #57993). This project involved the construction of a 5,200 square meter international conference hall as an annex of the existing Friendship Hall (which was constructed with Chinese aid during the 1970s). Shanghai Construction (Group) Corporation (SCG) was the contractor responsible for implementation. Construction began on 6 March 2003, and a formal groundbreaking ceremony took place on 30 June 2003. Then, on 5 April 2005, the conference hall was opened to the public.In 2014, the Chinese Government financed the renovation of this conference hall (see Project #30434).
