(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroonian minister of agriculture and rural development announced the upcoming rehabilitation of equipment at the rice development company Semry. Announcement was made May 4, 2019, during the launch of the 2019 agricultural season in the northern regions of Cameroon.
“We are going to rehabilitate Semry's production facilities by restoring a hulling line, repairing ploughing equipment and acquiring new ones,” Gabriel Mbairobe said.
This government measure, let’s note, is to breathe new life into this company which has been facing financial pressures recently. Indeed, due to the lack of adequate equipment, the production of paddy rice is often shipped to Nigeria for hulling.
