(Business in Cameroon) - During the 2017-2018 cotton campaign which will end officially this month, the equipment of SODECOTON run at 90% of their full capacity while in 2016, it was 51%.
According to the company’s managing director Mohamadou Bayero Bounou (photo), this was possible thanks to government’s financial support.
“The government’s support was important in the restructuration of our industrial equipment. A company as large as this one can not afford to use machines with low functioning capacity. We still need to fill the remaining 10% operating capacity”, he said during the Labor Day celebration event in the company. The director further declared that the company was counting on the government to help it reach its full potential. “Government’s support, via namely the payment of the remaining CFA15 billion -out of the CFA30 billion- it promised, would be a great opportunity to complete the works and operate Sodecoton’s installations at full capacity”, he added.
