In September 2013, China agreed to grant Laos 300 million RMB ($49 million) and provide a 200 million RMB ($32.6 million) interest-free loan, according to news reports ('China gives Laos $81m in aid, loans'). The agreement was signed by Lao Prime Minister Thongsing Thamavong and his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang. This project captures the 300 million RMB grant. This project is linked to #33812, the RMB 200 million interest-free loan.It is likely that this grant and the interest-free loan captured in #33812 are part of an economic and technical cooperation agreement, but no official source confirms this information.
