Freight transport between Cameroon and the Central African Republic via the border city of Garoua-Boulaï, western part of Cameroon, resumed March 28 after about a month of suspension.
The good news is owing to a decision by Central African rebels to break camp at that border they blocked since March 3 to protest against the appointment of the new Prime Minister in their country. Camp was broken after a dialogue was open between parties in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Therefore, the hundreds of trucks loaded with goods, which had been immobilized for several weeks, both in Cameroonian and Central African territory, have now resumed operations.
According to official Cameroonian customs statistics, about XAF55 billion worth of Central African goods transit Cameroon each year.
