The Gabonese government has signed a 23-billion FCFA convention intended to improve electricity supply to the Woleu Ntem province in the north of the country, official sources told PANA on Monday.
The convention was signed at the presidential palace by the Gabonese Prime Minister, Mr. Paul Biyoghe Mba, and Mr. Patrick Eveillard, General Manager of ETDE, a subsidiary company of Bouygues Group, an electricity company in Gabon.
President Ali Bongo Ondimba and the ambassador of France in Gabon, Mr. Jean- Didier Roisin, attended the signing ceremony.
The electrification project, which also covers the border zone, aims to help the
region to be autonomous in energy and make it possible for the local populations
to have access to electricity.
