During inter-governmental consultations between the Indonesian and German Governments in May 2004, the amount of Euro 10 million was earmarked for a project at Dr. Wahidin Sudirohusodo Hospital (RSWS) in Makassar, Sulawesi. While a loan of Euro 9.0 million was agreed upon for the procurement of equipment and civil works, a grant of Euro 1.0 million was stipulated for accompanying measures.
