In 2001, the the Chinese Government and the Government of Nepal signed six agreements, including one to construct a polytechnic institute in Banepa. On August 5, 2005, China committed $4.79 million in grant funding for construction on the Nepal Banepa Polytechnic Institute. Then, on December 30, 2005, it agreed to grant an additional $1.79 million for a retaining wall, land leveling, and sewage draining at the construction site. The institute was designed to offer enrollment for 220 full-time students in long term courses and 300 students in short term training courses. Areas of study were to include tourism, hotel management, electronics, information technology, cosmetology, and computer engineering. China Heilongjiang International Economic & TechnicalCooperative Corporation (CHIC) was the contractor responsible for project implementation. Construction began on March 24, 2006 and ended on April 18, 2008. The Banepa Polytechnic Institute was formally handed over the Nepalese government in April 25, 2008.

However, we use the RMB denominated estimate since most of the Chinese Government's grants are denominated in RMB.
