The Brazzaville Port and other secondary ports in Congo are to be managed by French firm NECROTRANS for 15 years, Congo’s Transport and Civil Aviation Ministry announced Monday.
The agreement for the concession was signed Saturday in Brazzaville, the Congolese capital, between the two parties.
Martin Blaise Boyamba and Gregory Querel, the Director-General of Port of Brazzaville and the Chief Executive Officer of NECOTRANS respectively, signed the deal in the presence of Congolese Transport and Civil Aviation Minister Rodolphe Adada.
The initiative forms part of the 24 billion (US$50 million) FCFA modernisation and rehabilitation programme for the ports, to be completed in 2015.
NECROTRANS already operates in Congo, mainly at Pointe-Noire, in port logistics, oil and transport.
