On December 20, 2001, the Chinese Government and the Government of Cape Verde signed an exchange of letters regarding the Praia Central Hospital Inpatient Department Construction Project. China’s Ministry of Commerce was the source of grant funding for this project, but the monetary value of this financial commitment is unknown. The project involved the construction of an inpatient department (住院部) at Praia Central Hospital (Agostinho Neto Hospital or 普拉亚中心医院) (see: Feb '09 ECCO). The contractor responsible for implementation is unknown. Construction officially began on March 6, 2004. Then, from August 18-26, 2004, five Chinese experts carried out a mid-term project inspection on behalf of MOFCOM and found its implementation to be excellent. The project handover ceremony took place on August 30, 2005.
The Chinese project title is 中心医院住院部 or 佛得角普拉亚中心医院住院部. AidData could not identify any evidence from the Chinese Government or the Government of Cape Verde that this project was supported by a loan. Therefore, it is coded as a grant-financed project for the time being. However, MOFCOM refers to the project as being supported by ‘aid’, which in principle could be a grant or interest-free loan. This issue merits further investigation.
