Description

The Chinese government gave Botswana an interest-free loan amounting to 10 million RMB to help Botswana implement some of its priority projects in National Development Plan (NDP 10). Matambo said consultations were still ongoing regarding projects to be implemented with the earlier grant. The agreement was signed between May 24th and 26th, 2009, as an economic and technical cooperation agreement.

Additional details

This project is not to be confused with project ID#37 Since loan terms for the interest-free loan are unavailable, AidData has set maturity period to 20 years by default and grace period to 10 years by default per China's Foreign Assistance White Paper (http://www.cidca.gov.cn/2018-08/06/c_129925064_3.htm) which states that the maturity period of interest-free loans is 20 years, with a drawdown period of 5 years, grace period of 5 years, and repayment over 10 years. AidData treats the drawdown period as providing 5 years of additional grace.
