Gabon’s prime minister, Raymond Ndong Sima, is planning infrastructure investments to boost the central African nation’s economy for “sustained, inclusive and equitable” growth.
Projects include construction of hospitals, a network of urban roads, and the extension of the electricity grid beyond the country’s main cities, he told reporters in Libreville, the capital, today.
Ndong Sima, 57, was appointed by President Ali-Ben Bongo Ondimba on Feb. 28 following a parliamentary election in December when the ruling Parti Democratique Gabonais won 108 of 120 seats.
