On May 15, 2007, after meeting with the President of Cape Verde, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao announced that the Chinese Government would build two rural schools in Cape Verde. The Chinese Government reportedly issued an RMB 30 million interest-free loan — mostly likely through an Economic and Technical Cooperation Agreement (ETCA) — to support the construction of these schools and potentially other projects (see NOVA University Lisbon). The Government of Cape Verde drew upon the proceeds of this loan to fully finance the Salineiro Secondary School Construction Project at a cost of CVE 82 million and the Achada Monte Secondary School Construction Project at a cost of CVE 82 million.
