  • Minister of Mining, Emmanuel Bondé

    CAMEROON, 2014/03/07 Minister of Mining, Emmanuel Bondé, has just published a call for expressions of interest in “pre-approving research agencies to provide work in relation to the opening of a diamond-cutting factory.” Interested parties have until March 31, 2014 to submit their bids to the Arrangement Services division of the Ministry of Mining. At the end of the newly launched process, Cameroon will have a diamond-cutting factory for the initial time in history and will be able to start the local processing of the precious stone. This will be in keeping with the Mining Code which requires that 15% of total production be processed locally.
