Description

On March 23, 2000, the People's Republic of China signed an exchange of notes pledging to donate water supply materials to South Africa, which would be used for the implementation of South Africa's Free Basic Water Policy. On October 8, 2002, the materials were officially handed over to the South African Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF). The exact Chinese government entity that funded this project is unknown.

Additional details

a previous version of this project listed ZAR 181 million as the transaction amount, but this amount was not mentioned in the project description or in the sources cited. It is possible that this number could be from the Southern African Development Community source, but this is no longer available.
