This was reported by the Central African Information Agency.
“The minister will be heading to Cote d’Ivoire soo to discuss land issues with Ivorians. Since the independence, we lost half of our forest cover. I think these are questions that will be part of the talks with minister Coussoud Mavoungou and his colleagues in Abidjan,” said Mrs. N’Dri Yoman.
As for minister Mavoungou, he said his trip to Ivory Coast will be an opportunity to share experience in the cadastral, land and domain areas. “We believe our presence will help create appropriate conditions for training. Congolese surveyors really need to be reformed. With the help of Cote d’Ivoire and its specialized schools, we could have the right tools to update their knowledge. This should also help find new elements to manage lands in our country,” he said.
