In 2009, China began a program to follow up on their construction of the multipurpose stadium built by Shanxi Construction in Yaounde from 2006-2008 (see ProjectID#31867) through technical training for managing the facilities. According to Cameroon's Aid Management System, the China Development Bank committed to a grant of 6,900,000 RMB to Cameroon's Ministry of Sports and Physical Education for this technical cooperation agreement. This consisted of two phases, each lasting two years. January 1st, 2012 marked the start date of the project. The first phase was from 2009-2011, which concluded with a donation of maintenance tools to the stadium (see linked ProjectID#31869), and on September 25, 2012, China and Cameroon signed an agreement to provide the second phase of technical training for operating the multipurpose stadium. This training by Chinese engineers aimed at providing skills for good management of the facilities, specifically how to use central air conditioning systems, electrical lighting systems, sound reinforcement systems, large-screen systems, drainage systems, including equipment maintenance, and other general maintenance and operations techniques. Cameroonian recipients expressed appreciation to Shanxi Corporation for this technical training. Cameroon's Aid Management System reported that the training was "ongoing" in July 2014. Further construction on the Yaounde's Multipurpose Stadium occurred on 1/2016.
An unknown sector of the Chinese Government is the funder but the grant proceeds were disbursed through a CDB account that was established with a host country bank.
