Sino-Chadian relations

Chad

China

The People's Republic of China and Republic of Chad first established bilateral relations in 1972. The countries maintained relations until 1997, when China severed ties due to Chad's recognition of the Republic of China (Taiwan). Relations resumed in August 2006 when Chad ended its relationship with Taiwan and pledged adherence to PR China's One China Policy.[1][2][3][4][5]

Chinese Development Finance to Chad[edit]

Since resuming diplomatic ties with China in 2006, Chad has received $219 million in official development finance from China.[6] This amount includes:

  • An $80 million economic and technical cooperation package of loans and debt relief[7]
  • A $92 million loan for construction of a cement factory[8]
  • Construction of a road network in N'Djamena by Guangdong Construction International Construction Co.[9]
