The exchange was particularly long on December 18, 2018 at the end of the morning between the Prime Minister, Head of Government, Philemon Yang and the Chinese investor delegation led by Liu Zhenya, president of Global Energy interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (GEIDCO).
This can probably be explained by the subject at the heart of this hearing which the Prime Minister granted to the Chinese investor, on behalf of the Head of State. GEIDCO, which is working to establish a global energy interconnection system, would like to support Cameroon in the development of the energy sector as explained by Liu Zhenya, president of Global Energy interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (GEIDCO) who headed the Chinese investor delegation.
« We have come to meet with the Cameroonian authorities because we want them to drive the electrification process in Africa. It is a question of the search for ways and means for the production of renewable energies », stressed one of the members.
On projects already initiated in the field of energy production, the Chinese NGO intends to help Cameroon “because energy is the fundamental basis of all development”. For its officials, it is a question of getting Cameroon to produce beyond its domestic needs in order to allow it to export it to other countries. The Chinese delegation indicated that it had found an attentive ear to the head of the Cameroonian government during yesterday’s exchanges.
The Global Energy Interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (GEIDCO), with its permanent office domiciled in Beijing, China, is an international organization among willing firms, associations, institutions and individuals who are dedicated to promoting the sustainable development of energy worldwide. The purpose of GEIDCO is to promote the establishment of a GEI system, to meet the global demand for electricity in a clean and green way, to implement the United Nations “Sustainable Energy for All” and climate change initiatives, and to serve the sustainable development of humanity. The GEIDCO will promote the concept of GEI, formulate GEI development plans, promote the creation of a GEI technical standards framework, organize concerted and collaborative efforts in researches and innovations, key studies, international communication and cooperation, engineering project implementation, provide consulting services, and lead the development of GEI. The founding of GEIDCO marks the transition of GEI from a concept to strategy implementation. Looking forward, GEI will promote South-South and South-North cooperation and help transform the resource advantage into economic advantage in regions like Asia, Africa and South America. This will help address power shortage and poverty, narrow regional gap and difference. Life will be better as the world gradually turn into a bright, peaceful and harmonious global village with sufficient energy, blue sky and green land.
