On April 24, 2019, the President of the Republic, H.E. Mr Alassane OUATTARA, presided over a Council of Ministers at the headquarters of the Félix Houphouët-Boigny Foundation for Peace Research (FHB Foundation) in Yamoussoukro.

At this council, several decisions were taken, including a project to support the governance of the coffee and cocoa sector to increase producers’ incomes and improve access to electricity in rural areas to enable the installation of 2027 km of overhead power lines, 23,549 connections and 22,960 public lighting households.

The Council also adopted two decrees to finance the project for roads to open up cross-border areas – Phase 1 – Bondoukou section – Soko Ghana border.
