Ensuring food security, reducing poverty by increasing the integration and regional synergies of Central Africa (Cameroon, Congo Brazzaville, Chad, Central African Republic, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea) is the challenge of CEMAC (Economic Community of Central African States).

Under the impulse of its executive body the CEBEVIRHA (Economic Commission for Livestock, Meat and Fish Resources), the CEMAC has just signed this 1st of August a Memorandum of Understanding with EMRC (an international organization based in Brussels specialized in bridging gaps between profiles interested in the African private sector) to raise funds, attract financiers and technical partners for the meat, fisheries and livestock sectors.

All parties seem to be aware of the challenge; among the 5 African regions, the CEMAC zone, is currently the least developed. Nevertheless, they've agreed on the need for close partnerships to allow controlled and accelerated growth in the region.

The CEBEVIRHA has a 10-year implementation plan based on 5 axes, 11 programs and 55 projects derived from national, sub-regional and continental priorities requiring 200M € to gradually implement food autonomy.

The first step will be the round table of investors organized and coordinated by EMRC.

Prof. Daniel Ona-Ondo, President of the Commission of the CEMAC  |   Idit Miller, VP & MD of EMRC.
