    Gabonese president Albert-Bernard Bongo and French Ambassador Maurice Delauney signed two financial agreements in Libreville last Saturday (February 26) which will add 275 million francs CFA (about 400 thousand pounds sterling) to the Gabonese economy.

    One agreement provides for a French subsidy of 35 million francs CFA (about 53 thousand pounds sterling) toward the development of Gabonese cocoa production over the next year.
