Ivory Coast Summit Coordinates Road Maintenance Investment


Collective action on investment is needed to raise the quality of the African road network.

This was one of the recommendations at the official opening ceremony of the 21st General Assembly of the Association of African Road Maintenance Funds (AFERA) that took place Monday in Abidjan the Ivorian capital.

The event with the theme “Towards sustainable financing of road funds for better maintenance of the African road network”, was presided over by the Ivorian Prime Minister Robert Beugré Mambé.

”It’s to have a positioning that allows all African countries to have at least one road maintenance fund that meets the standards. Why not one like Côte d’Ivoire’s? asks Ésaie Moussa Aubin, President of ARMFA

“In other words, positioning at the level of the African Union. Decisions can be taken hard enough to say that from now on all member countries will have a road maintenance fund of such and such a standard”, Aubin added.
