Cameroon Housing Minister Visiting Egypt to Boost Bilateral Ties

Cameroonian Housing Minister Jean Claude Mbwentchou has started Saturday his visit to Egypt, which will last for several days.

The visit comes in response to Egyptian Housing Minister Moustafa Madbouly’s invitation to his Cameroonian counterpart to visit the country with the aim of boosting bilateral housing cooperation.

These remarks were made by the Egyptian ambassador to Cameroon, Sherif Elleithy to the state-run news MENA agency on Monday.

According to El-Leithy, the Cameroonian housing minister is due to discuss with his Egyptian counterpart the methods of enhancing relations between the two countries in the housing field.  Mbwentchou will also review the efforts being exerted to encourage more Egyptian contracting companies to enter the Cameroon’s flourishing construction market.

Moreover, Mbwentchou is also expected to sign a memorandum of understanding in field of housing and civil development with his Egyptian counterpart. He plans to hold meetings with the chairmen of the Arab Contractors Company, and of the General Organization for Physical Planning.

From his part, Ambassador El-Leithy has emphasised on the importance of paving the way for the Egyptian contracting companies to enter the Cameroonian market so as to implement giant infrastructure projects there, which were recently announced by Cameroonian President Paul Biya.
