Chinese and Cameroonian engineers are striving to complete the construction of China-aided new National Assembly building of Cameroon next year as scheduled despite disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, officials said on Monday.
“It is true that we have had delays, but we are currently regaining lost time,” Cameroonian National Assembly House Speaker Cavaye Yeguie Djibril told reporters during an inspection visit to the site of the new building in the capital, Yaounde.
The construction of the building has been confronted with challenges during the pandemic, but the construction progress in an orderly and balanced manner has boosted the confidence in the timely completion, said Theodore Datouo, deputy speaker of the National Assembly, who is charged with overseeing the works.
“For the main construction, we have realized about 98 percent of the first part, it is the same for the banquet hall and for the offices we have realized about 20 percent,” Datouo told reporters during the inspection visit.
The project of construction includes a 400-seat hemicycle and a 14-floor building, according to officials. Enditem
