The SDO called for respect for conformity in the award of contracts, issuance of tender offers in time and the execution of projects within stipulated time as well as the judicious management of financial resources. The Chargé de Mission from the Ministry of Finance, Albin Roland Koumba Ayissi, said the 2021 budget is peculiar in that it is taking place in a context characterized by the Covid-19 pandemic and its economic consequences, security concerns in the Far North, South West and North Regions and the organisation of CHAN and CAN which demand a lot of financial resources. At the same time, 2021 marks the beginning of the implementation of National Development Strategy as well as Regional councils besides the normal State duties of improving the living conditions of the population. Of the 6.5 billion, close to 5 billion in Littoral II will be reserved for investment whereas about 2.3 billion will be used for the running cost.
