(Business in Cameroon) - Douala autonomous port just created a department that will take care of dredging at Daoula-Bonaberi port. In that regard, the port’s managing director Cyrus Ngo’o (photo) signed a decision organizing the management of that department.

The port authority indicates that this department is the result of a December 7, 2018 decision advising the creation of such department to self-govern dredging at Douala-Bonaberi port.

Indeed, to-date, dredging was ensured by foreign countries. In 2016, the government signed, for the 2nd time, a 24-month deal with China Harbour Engineering Corporation (CHEC) for dredging at Douala port for XAF15.9 billion. In 2014, that same deal was agreed with the same Chinese company for XAF18.7 billion.

Before those deals with CHEC, dredging at Douala port was done by Belgian Jan de Nul. Jan de Nul stopped its services because of a reported XAF11 billion Cameroon owed it.
