(Business in Cameroon) - Launching this year’s last parliamentary session in Yaoundé, on November 2, 2018, Cavaye Yeguie Djibril (photo), president of Cameroon’s national assembly, indicated the deputies’ expectations in the framework of the elaboration of the 2019 finance bill.  

"As the 2018 budget fulfilled its role by supporting the effort against instability, by highly backing the organization of senatorial and presidential elections and finally, by allowing an optimal preparation of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON), the national representation wishes the 2019 budget will do the same. Security remains a major challenge and other elections are awaited", said Cavaye Yeguie Djibril.

The president did not omit continuation of the implementation of infrastructures that will create many jobs and the sensitive problem of the viability of the road network which, according to him, should be one of the priorities of the law they are to review.

As for international commitments made by the country, the president of the lower chamber called the government to continue repayment of the debt so that Cameroon can continue to deserve the trust of development partners.

Let’s note that the session of November is essentially consecrated to voting the budget.
