The Chinese Ambassador to Cameroon Wang Ying Wu, has added his voice to those of other key actors in the funding of water and electricity supply in Cameroon, to assure the population that they will soon have unperturbed access to the basic amenities.
His Excellency Wang Ying Wu met with the Speaker of the National Assembly, Cavaye Yegue Djibril on Monday, July 12 to discuss parliamentary and bilateral cooperation between the two States. Water and Electricity projects funded by China were one of the main topics on the table.
“We talked about the cooperation between our countries in General, especially certain projects like that of water and electricity. There are problems with the supply of potable water in Cameroon. The first phase is already completed, For Douala we have already set the structures up that will produce 150,000 meters cube per day” Wang Ying Wu said.
The Ambassador went further to indicate the level of progress they are about to make in other towns “we are presently working on the Sanaga to supply the town of Yaounde, whose capacity of production is 300,000 metres cube” he added.
Among other things, the Diplomat equally expressed satisfaction with the progress made on the new National Assembly building still funded by the Chinese government.
It is worth noting that some weeks back, the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) on their part, gave a 3.6 billion FCFA non-refundable grant for water and electricity supply in Cameroon. This was coupled with the Minister of Water and Energy Resources, Gaston Eloundou’s assurances, on how stable the supply of electricity and water will be in the months ahead. He laid emphasis on the importance of energy production for the supply of water.
