Description

In 2005, China’s Ministry of Commerce provided a $3 million interest-free loan to the Government of Gabon for the Hospital Rehabilitation and Libreville Medical Team Housing Construction Project. This project involved the rehabilitation of the Sino-Gabonese Cooperation Hospital (Hôpital de la Coopération Sino-Gabonaise de Libreville) in the city of Libreville and the Sino-Gabonese Friendship Hospital (Hopital de L'amitie Sino Gabonaise) in the town of Franceville. It also involved the construction of housing for the Chinese medical team stationed in Libreville. Shanghai Construction Group (SCG) was the contractor responsible for implementation. The project started on February 12, 2006 and it ended on November 30, 2006. It was officially handed over to the local authorities on March 9, 2007.
