(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroonian Minister Delegate for economy Paul Tasong (photo), chaired December 14 in Kribi, presentation of the results of the feasibility study carried out to construct a bridge over the Ntem River, on the Kribi-Campo (Cameroon)-Bata (Equatorial Guinea) corridor.

The Equatorial Guinean side was represented by Baltasar Engonga Edjo'o, Minister in charge of Regional Integration, and Reginaldo Asu Mangue, Deputy Minister in charge of Public Works, Housing and Urban Planning.

Once completed, the Cameroonian Minister Paul Tasong said, the facility will “strengthen and increase traffic of people and goods between the two States, ease and promote trade, and finally ensure the safe crossing of the river”.

The two countries agreed on a meeting in Douala, the economic capital of Cameroon, on 1 February 2019, to select the location and type of bridge to be constructed on the basis of the results of the preliminary study and proposals of the Joint Technical Committee for project monitoring.

Let’s note that the African Development Bank (AfDB) has agreed in principle to provide XAF2 billion for this project, since 2013. Also, in 2016, a contract was signed with the ECTA BTP/Tractebel consortium for the technical study.
