On September 21, 2011, during a visit for the inauguration of a bridge built in Bamako, the Chinese Assistant Minister of Commerce Yu Jiahua signed an agreement with Mali's Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Soumeylou Maiga Boubèye. One portion of the agreement was a grant worth 70 million CNY (approximately 5.1 billion CFA francs (XOF)). The total agreement was worth more than 54 billion CFA francs (XOF). The grant was projected to be used to finance projects identified by the Malian government to improve the population's living conditions.At the same time, the ministers signed two other agreements.
