On December 12, 2011, Zambia’s Finance and National Planning Minister Alexander Chikwanda and China’s Vice-Foreign Minister Zhai Jun signed two Economic and Technical Cooperation Agreements (ETCA). One committed a 43.3 billion ZMK ($8.5 million USD) grant and the other was a 32 billion ZMK ($6.2 million USD) interest-free loan (ETCA #2335). The proceeds from the funds were supposed to be used in the fight against poverty and to support other projects that would support the Government of Zambia’s Sixth National Development Plan (SNDP). However, it is unclear exactly how the proceeds were ultimately used.
