Cameroonian President urges State agents to limit missions abroad to reduce budget spending

Business in Cameroon | Cameroonian Secretary-General of the Presidency (SG-PR), Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh, sent April 1st a letter to the Prime Minister’s office, asking them to limit missions abroad in order to reduce budget spending.

“We notice that many government members, Heads of State companies and senior officials regularly go for missions abroad. All these trips really weigh on the State budget and disrupt the good follow-up of concerned services.”

With this note, Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh who claims instructions were given by President Paul Biya, is urging the Prime Minister to take adequate measures in this regard. In turn, the Secretary-General of the Prime Minister, Magloire Séraphin Fouda, informed all government members and associates of the new Presidential instruction. 

“The Prime Minister, Head of Government, has asked me to inform you that in the future, only statutory missions whose usefulness for Cameroon has been proven will be authorized. Consequently, requests for mission permits for participation in activities such as conferences, seminars, symposia or awards will be systematically rejected, in particular when such travel is supported by the State budget or that of the public bodies concerned,” he said on April 5.
