From 2000 to 2011, there were approximately 19 Chinese official development finance projects identified in Madagascar through various media reports. These projects range from developing a new 40.5 MW hydroelectric plant in the Betsiboka River basin with a loan from the Chinese Export Import Bank, to the construction of an international conference center in Antananarivo.
