500 OPÉRATIONS DE CATARACTE ANNONCÉES POUR LE MOIS DE MAI 2016 (CAMEROUN-INFO.NET)

L’information aura été peu médiatisée, mais le


«téléphone arabe» a fait son effet. Cécile Kenmogne
Kamga, septuagénaire, a appris la nouvelle par le phéno-
mène de «bouche-à-oreille», d’après le quotidien natio-
nal, Cameroon Tribune, paru vendredi 15 avril 2016. La
vieille dame n’a pas voulu louper cette opportunité gra-
tuite. «Je l’ai appris par le biais d’une voisine. N’ayant
pas assez de moyens financiers, je me suis dirigée ici
pour qu’on m’opère parce que je ne vois presque plus»,
confie-t-elle. Ces opérations de cataracte entrent dans le
cadre de la préparation du projet Action Lumière financé
par la Chine et mis en œuvre au Cameroun à travers le
Ministère de la Santé Publique. L’HGOPY et l’hôpital de
Mbalmayo ont été retenus comme cadres des interven-
tions chirurgicales. «Nous les accueillons par ordre d’arri-
vée et nous avons des fiches sur lesquelles on écrit leurs noms et numéros de téléphone avant de prendre leurs para-
mètres», explique Véronique Elomo, infirmière à l’HGOPY.

FCFA 90 BILLION TO MAINTAIN OVER 16,000 KM OF ROADS IN 2016 (BUSINESSINCAMEROON.COM)


The Cameroonian Ministry of Public Works has just officially launched the
2016 road maintenance campaign. According to the senior officers of this
ministry, this year, a budget of FCfa 90 billion has been allocated to the
road maintenance works in the country. Thanks to this funding, of which
about half (FCfa 42 billion) comes from unused resources carried over
from 2014 and 2015, the Cameroonian government plans to maintain over
16,000 km of roads throughout the country this year, we officially lear-
ned. As a reminder, less than 10% the Cameroonian road network is main-
tained, due to insufficient resources allocated to the works, Jean Claude
Atanga Bikoé, Administrator of the Road Fund, recently confided. Indeed,
we learned, the main source of resources for these works come from part
of the special tax on oil products paid by oil products distributors. This
licence fee is currently, the Road Fund Administrator said, of FCfa 55 bil-
lion per year, while the maintenance cost of a single kilometre of un-
paved road, with the network estimated to have 100,000 km (excluding tarred roads), is on average of FCfa 2 billion.

TURKISH GROUP EREN HOLDING INCREASES THE CAPITAL OF ITS CEMENT FACTORY IN CAMEROON
AND RESHUFFLE ITS TEAM (BUSINESSINCAMEROON.COM)

The capital of Medcem Cameroun, the cement factory built in the country
the Turkish group Eren Holding, has just moved from FCfa 10 million to 400
million through "cash contributions" from the shareholders , we learned in a
legal notice published on 18 April 2016. Though the company has kept tight-
lipped on the objectives of this recapitalisation, we can presume that it will
be used to truly launch the operations of this cement factory in Cameroon.
Indeed, after a brief appearance of the Medcem cement on the Cameroo-
nian market in October 2015, mainly in the Quifeurou chain of hardware
stores, the product then disappeared a few weeks later without any real
explanation. This short appearance of the bags of Medcem Cameroun ce-
ment on the market then suggested that the 4th cement factory (after
Cimencam of the Lafarge group, Cimaf and Dangote) of the country was
finally in operation, after postponing twice the commissioning of its produc-
tion plant in Douala in March and June 2015. In addition to the above-
mentioned injection of funds made by the shareholders of Medcem Came-
roun, the Turkish cement factory in Douala also made changes to its mana-
gement team. It is now led by Turkish Taha Abdurrahman Ozbey, who takes over the position of MD from Cameroonian Jacky Bruno
Tcheutchoua, downgraded to the position of second Deputy Managing Director. The Board is chaired by Turkish Emre Eren.

LE PORT DU HAVRE FOURNIRA DE L’ASSISTANCE TECHNIQUE AU PORT EN EAU PROFONDE DE KRIBI (INVESTIRAUCAMEROUN.COM)

De passage au Cameroun pour des échanges avec leurs partenaires


locaux, en vue de booster le volume des transactions entre ports
camerounais et français, les responsables des ports Haropa (Le
Havre, Rouen et Paris) ont révélé avoir déjà noué un partenariat
avec le tout nouveau port en eau profonde de Kribi, dont la mise en
service est annoncée pour la fin de ce second trimestre 2016. «On a
un accord de partenariat avec le port en eau profonde de Kribi, à
travers le port du Havre(photo), qui est un port en eau profonde», a
indiqué Nicolas Ocis, le directeur général du port de Rouen. Con-
crètement, précise ce dernier, dans le cadre de ce partenariat, le
port français du Havre «devra assister techniquement le port de
Kribi dans sa phase opérationnelle». Selon la même source, les
ports Haropa sont déjà en partenariat avec le port de Douala, au-
quel ils fournissent «des solutions d’ingénierie». Mais au-delà de ce
partenariat sur des questions techniques et opérationnelles, les ports Haropa apparaissent comme étant plus compéti-
tifs pour les exportations camerounaises. En effet, souligne Hervé Cornède, le DG du port du Havre, «au niveau tari-
faire, les ports Haropa offrent le mètre carré à 42 euros (environ 27 510 Fcfa), contre 70 (environ 45 850 FCfa) et 200
euros (environ 131 000 FCfa) dans d’autres ports européens». Cette grille tarifaire explique probablement l’impor-
tance des volumes des transactions entre ces ports français et camerounais, qui est officiellement estimé à plus de
300 000 tonnes de marchandises chaque année.

EGYPTIAN COMPANY MCV DELIVERS 100 BUSES TO CAMEROON FOR 2016 AFRICA CUP OF NATIONS (BUSINESSINCAMEROON.COM)
The Egyptian ambassador in Cameroon, Sherif Salah Eldin Elleithy, recently
supported a delegation from the Egyptian company Manufacturing Commercial
Vehicles (MCV) visiting the Cameroonian Minister of Transport, Edgard Alain
Mebe Ngo’o. During the meeting, the company specialised in the manufacture
of commercial vehicles offered to deliver 100 buses to the Cameroonian go-
vernment for urban transport during the Africa Women's Cup of Nations, which
the country will host between November and December 2016. This is the 3rd
partnership offer made to the Cameroonian government in terms of urban
transit within 3 months, with 2 closely related to the organisation of the 2016
African Cup of Nations. Indeed, before MCV, who presents itself as "the first
manufacturer of commercial vehicles (bus and truck) in the Middle East and
Africa (...) with a production capacity of up to 10,000 buses per year", the
Minister of Transport has already met, in February 2016, a delegation of the
management of the Brazilian company Marcopolo. This company, who has
been working for almost 3 years now with the government on a urban transport system through BRT (Bus Rapid Transit), is planning
to take advantage of the importance of the 2016 Africa Cup of Nations to speed up its project in Cameroon. If this project is ap-
proved, "the buses will be in Cameroon by end September, to effectively contribute to the 2016 AfCON", the Brazilian ambassador
had specified at the end of the meeting. On 11 March 2016, it was the turn of the company Industrial Vehicles Corporation (Iveco),
an automobile firm based in Turin and owned by American-Italian consortium CNH Industrial, to try to court the Cameroonian ur-
ban transport sector. This was done through a service offer made to the Cameroonian Minister of
Transport, Alain Edgar Mebe Ngo’o.
