    Background: President Albert-Bernard Bongo of Gabon, currently touring West Germany trying to attract industrial investment for his country, had a half-hour meeting with President Gustav Heinemann in Bonn yesterday (Thursday).

    Meanwhile, Gabonese Foreign Minister Jean-Remy Ayoune, who is accompanying President Bongo on the tour, was putting his signature to two important multi-million Deutschmark agreements.

    President Bongo, whose six-day visit to West Germany is private, had earlier met Chancellor Willy Brandt. His discussions with President Heinemann centred on economic relations between the two countries.

    Foreign Minister Jean-Remy Ayoune, a former ambassador to Bonn, has been holding talks with economic and financial officials in both the capital and in Bremen.

    Yesterday, his meeting with the Secretary of State at the West German Foreign Office, Sigismund Freiherr von Braun, resulted in the signing of two new agreements.

    The first provides for a loan of six million Deutschmarks to the Gabonese Development Bank for the promotion of small and medium industries. As part of this agreement, the German Development Society acquires a share in the Gabonese bank.

    The second agreement involves a 25 million Deutschmark contribution to the international funds raised for the construction of a railway between Owendo and Boue. The railway is planned to help open up a vast timber region in Gabon -- and financial co-operation is in the interests of West German timber importers who rate second among the consumers of Gabon's timber output.
