Transport-Trade Facilitation (CEMAC) Project—PID

Description

The Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC) which includes Cameroon, Central African Republic (CAR), Chad, Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, was officially created in 1994 to replace the previous formal and ineffective customs union UDEAC (Union Douanière des Etats d’Afrique Centrale). Intra-regional trade among the six countries is still very limited, currently close to 5% of the total trade in the region, due to the the current transit system which hinders regional integration, the poor condition of road infrastructure, and the lack of complementarity between the economies in the region.

The project will contribute to enhance regional trade and integration and will specifically provide the landlocked countries RCA and Chad with a better access to the Port of Douala through : (i) assistance to the strengthening of the CEMAC Customs Union; (ii) improvement of the road infrastructure and good transportation along the main transit corridors to the hinterland.
