Description

In 2006, the Chinese Government provided a $4.5 million grant to the the Government Democratic Republic of the Congo. The grant proceeds were meant to support the construction of Bukavu Airport Road and other unspecified infrastructure projects. China Road and Bridge Corporation was the contractor responsible for implementation of the Bukavu Airport Road Rehabilitation Project, which connects Bukavu to the Kavumu airport.

Additional details

Given that Project ID#53507 already captures a $14.8 million grant in 2009 for the Bukavu Airport Road Rehabilitation Project and the proceeds from this grant may have drawn from the funds that were committed in 2006, AidData treats Project ID#407 as an umbrella project.
