  • Description

    PRESIDENT AHIDJO OF CAMEROUN INAUGURATED A ROLLING MILL AT AHIDJO, NINETY KILOMETRES FROM DOUALA IN CAMEROUN BY TELLING FOREIGN SPECIALISTS IN THE COUNTRY THAT THEIR STAY WAS A TEMPORARY ONE. HE EXPLAINED THAT THEY MUST UNDERSTAND THAT IT WAS A MATTER OF LOYALTY FOR THEM TO IMPART THE BEST OF THEIR KNOWLEDGE TO THE CAMEROUN WORKMAN.

    THE PRESIDENT SAID THAT CAMEROUN HAS SHOWN IN THE LAST FEW YEARS THAT IT WAS ALWAYS READY TO OFFER SPECIALLY ATTRACTIVE CONDITIONS TO INDUSTRIAL AND FINANCIAL PROMOTERS INTERESTED IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. HE ADDED THAT COLLABORATION IN AN ATMOSPHERE OF GOODWILL AND COMRADESHIP EXISTED AND THAT THE FOREIGN CONCERNS WERE REPAID BY THE GRATITUDE AND ESTEEM WHICH THEY EVOKED.

    IN 1954 ALUCAN (THE CAMEROUN ALUMINUM DEVELOPMENT COMPANY) BUILT THE FIRST FACTORY AT EDEA WHICH TODAY PROVIDES 50,000 TONS A YEAR, THE NEW FACTORY WILL HAVE EQUIPMENT CAPABLE OF AN OUTPUT TWICE AS HIGH AS THE OLD. FIFTY PEOPLE ARE AT PRESENT EMPLOYED THERE.
