People's Republic of China–Djibouti relations refers to the current and historical relationship between the People's Republic of China and Djibouti. China and Djibouti established relations on January 8, 1979. China has financed a number of public works projects in Djibouti, including a stadium, the offices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the People's Palace.[1] In September 2010, Type 920 Hospital Ship, also known as the "Peace Ark", visited Djibouti.[2]

  • $8.2 million to fund the construction of a hospital in Arta[4]
  • A $2.41 million grant for construction of a new headquarters for the Djiboutian Foreign Minister[5]
