Yaounde, Cameroon Africa. (Cameroon News) – Cameroon’s Prime Minister Philemon Yang has instructed the Minister of Economy, Planning and Regional Development, Louis Paul Motaze to collaborate with other stakeholders in the road sector to construct more roads and render the country’s industrial zones and sites of giant projects, more accessible in order to attract potential investors.
Philemon Yang on Thursday, December 8, 2011 at the Prime Minister’s Office in Yaounde, chaired the 11th board meeting of the National Road Board.
The board is a consultative body that brings together representatives from the public and private sectors, civil society and road users to seek to establish dialogue between the actors of the road sector via permanent consultations and meetings aimed at coordinating road sector operations, projects, programmes and policies.
President Paul Biya during his swearing-in speech at the National Assembly on November 3, 2011, cited giant energy, mining and infrastructure projects that will begin in 2012 as part of the implementation of his seven-year major accomplishments programme whose ultimate goal is to make Cameroon an emerging country by 2035.
The industrial sector, Prime Minister Yang told members of the National Road Board, constitute a major sector in the major accomplishments programme.
Some of the industrial zones have been abandoned and illegally occupied, the Permanent Secretary of the Road Board, Moumbain Matapit Issofa said in an interview after the session and added that some potential investors have left Cameroon to set up their companies in different countries because of lack of accessible sites in industrial zones.Pin It
