Round table for the financing of infrastructure projects in Central Africa

 

Under the High Patronage of HE Mr. Denis Sassou N’Guesso, President of the Republic of Congo, the Governments of the Central African Republic, the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Chad and the ECCAS will hold on Thursday March 19, 2020 at the Kintélé International Conference Center in Brazzaville, the Round Table for the financing of infrastructure projects in Central Africa.
This high-level meeting, which benefits from the visible involvement of the African Development Bank, aims to present and mobilize 3 billion USD for multilateral and bilateral partners for the financing of major projects.

Among these structuring projects: the Bridge Road-Railway (BRR) project between the cities of Kinshasa (DRC) and Brazzaville (Congo), and the extension of the Kinshasa-Ilebo railway, the CD13 road development program including the construction from the Ouesso-Bangui-N’Djamena road axis, the construction and upgrading of port and navigation infrastructure on the Congo River and its tributaries the Oubangui and the Sangha.

The achievement of these historic projects presents a major challenge for the development and regional integration of Central Africa and the continent.

Nous sommes au regret de vous informer qu’au vu des circonstances liées au COVID-19, la table ronde pour le financement des projets infrastructures de transport en Afrique Centrale : République centrafricaine, République du Congo, République Démocratique du Congo, République du Tchad – est reportée à une date ultérieure qui vous sera communiquée prochainement.

Nous remercions les autorités congolaises, les Gouvernements du Tchad, de la Centrafrique, de la République Démocratique du Congo ainsi que la Banque Africaine de Développement, qui ont participé à l’élaboration de cet événement.

Nous tenons également à nous excuser auprès de tous nos participants et intervenants pour qui cette décision difficile occasionnera des désagréments et restons à votre disposition avec tous les membres du Comité d’organisation de la Table ronde pour toutes informations liées aux financements des projets.
