Importance of the Grand Zambi-Kribi Road project

The actualization of this road infrastructure will not only build a viable road link, facilitating the accessibility of the deepwater port of Kribi but also help improve the competitiveness of products on internal and external markets by significantly reducing the overall transport costs of traffic from South Cameroon and neighboring countries.

The project will also facilitate the opening up of production areas within the route, which will, in turn, create employment and therefore improve the standard of living of the locals.
