On November 17, 2009, the Chinese Government and the Government of Sudan signed two Economic and Technical Cooperation Agreements (ETCAs) in which the Chinese Government committed RMB 80 million in grant funding (see linked project ID#57561) and a RMB 80 million interest-free loan (as captured by this project) to Sudan for unspecified purposes (see '中苏签订经济技术合作协定'; see monetary values at 'China and Sudan sign new oil, gas cooperation agreements'). On January 21, 2010, the Chinese Government and the Sudanese Government signed the bank account processing rules for the funds committed in these ETCAs (see '中苏签订经济技术合作协定').
As this is an ETCA, which is a financing mechanism specific to China's Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), AidData has coded MOFCOM as the specific Chinese Government institution responsible for providing this grant. Since loan terms for the interest-free loan are unavailable, AidData has set maturity period to 20 years by default and grace period to 10 years by default per China's Foreign Assistance White Paper (http://www.cidca.gov.cn/2018-08/06/c_129925064_3.htm) which states that the maturity period of interest-free loans is 20 years, with a drawdown period of 5 years, grace period of 5 years, and repayment over 10 years. AidData treats the drawdown period as providing 5 years of additional grace.
