ANNEXE 1: IMPLEMENTATION MATRIX OF THE PRSP

Core area 1: Promotion of a stable macro-economic framework
Measures/actionsFollow-up indicatorsPeriod of executionAssigned institutionLevel of executionObservations
1.1 Macro-economic and budgetary framework
Maintaining a stable macro economic framework and implementing, in a satisfactory way, the final year of the second three-year economic and financial programme under PRGFSatisfactory execution of the third year of the PRGF2003MINFIMINEPATCCS/PPTEThe first two years of the programme (October 2000-September 2001 and 1 October 2001-30 September 2002) were globally satisfactory. There were however some technical problems encountered during the 2002 second semester which delayed the final establishment of the budgetary statement towards the end of December 2002, as well as the overall performance for the second semester of the second annual agreement. These problems were however overcome during the 2003 first semester thanks to the strict implementation of corrective measures taken by the authorities who also pursued the implementation of reforms in budget management and in the real sectors of the economy.



The Prime Minister, Head of Government signed on 2 December 2003, the letter of intent of Cameroon for the fourth review of the Medium-Term Economic and Financial Programme backed by the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF).



During its 17 December 2003 session, the Board of Directors of the IMF examined Cameroon’s file and took key decisions at the end of its meeting. As a matter of fact, the board

(i) approved the fourth review of the medium-term programme;

(ii) extended the duration of the PRGF programme to 20 December 2004;

(iii) authorized the disbursement of a sum of USD 27.4 million, representing (i) USD 23 million (about CFAF 14 thousand million) of the close of the fourth review, and (ii) USD 4.4 million (about CFAF 2.7 thousand million) of interim assistance under HIPC initiative.



The Government has embarked on the implementation of execution criteria, as well as quantitative and structural benchmarks of the third and last annual programme under the agreement backed by the PRFG.
Using budget savings derived from the debt relief, in conformity with criteria set out in the decision point document (control and monitoring mechanisms)Satisfactory execution of projects deemed eligible by the CCS/PPTE and approved by the Government2003MINFI

CCS/PPTE
  • A special account earmarked for HIPC funds was opened at BEAC in October 2000. As of 10 January 2004, a sum of CFAF 156 thousand million was deposited in this account.
  • An Advisory and Follow-up Committee for the management of HIPC resources was set up by Decree N°2000/960/PM of 1 December 2000. The Committee comprises 19 members including: 6 government officials, 5 representatives of donor agencies, 1 representative of the private sector, 3 representatives of religious groups, 1 representative of professional micro-finance associations, 2 representatives of NGOs and associations.
  • Resident representatives of the IMF and the World Bank took part in working sessions organised by the Committee as observers.
  • The implementation of the first set of programmes and projects approved by the CCS/PPTE got off on a slow and difficult start due to technical problems linked to the establishment of transparent disbursement mechanisms within the budget procedures and processes in place.


Moreover, the preparation of good quality programmes and projects by promoters took a longer period of time due to the following problems: (1) poor technical capacities of promoters both from the private and public sectors, (2) poor institutional capacities and (3) problems of organisation and functioning at the level of the CCS/PPTE which are currently being overcome. The Government had taken appropriate measures to secure and speed up the disbursement of HIPC resources. With the support of the UNDP, a national sensitisation and information campaign was organised for the preparation of programmes and projects to be submitted to the CCS/PPTE before adoption by the Government. The Government is also preparing to launch the first technical and financial audit of projects financed under HIPC funds.

Projects validated during the transitional period are being executed.
  • A surplus sum of CFAF 27 thousand million which was recorded for the 2003 financial year will be carry over to the 2004 financial year whose package amounts to CFAF 90 thousand million.


The Prime Minister, Head of Government signed Decree N°2004/0556/PM of 23 February 2004 relating to the distribution of HIPC resources listed in the 2004 budget representing recurrent and investment budget. The priority here was given to social sectors, rural development and infrastructure.
Executing in a satisfactory manner the Third Structural Adjustment Credit (CAS III) and observing the closing date of the credit (30 June 2003)Disbursement conditionalities of the floating bracket earmarked for the implementation of reforms of the port sector;

Drawing up of the CDC privatisation strategy for the following sectors: banana, rubber and palm oil; preparation of tender documents for this purpose Preparation of CAMTEL preliminary business plan and specifications; Finalisation of transaction documents for SNEC concession.

MINEPAT
The overall conditionalities related to the remaining floating brackets (second privatisation and transport brackets) were realised as of 13 December 2003. The close of CAS III was extended to 31 March 2004 with regard to deadline for domestic review and disbursement by the IDA.

CDC

As concerns the drawing up of the privatisation strategy for banana, rubber and palm oil sections, the plan of action is being executed notably as concerns banana. Consultants were recruited for the privatisation of rubber and palm oil, and the plan of action for the revival of these products was prepared and adopted.

A consultant was recruited in October 2003 to evaluate the banana sector. As concerns rubber and palm oil sectors, actions took off in December 2003. What is expected now is: the preparation of reports on (i) evaluation of the banana sector, (ii) judicial studies of agreements on the banana sector signed by the CDC and (iv) reference benchmark.

The convention on the take over of the tea sector was signed by the buyer BROBON FTNEX PT Y Ltd-Cameroon Tea Estate.

Government consultants in the privatisation process of banana, rubber and palm oil sector were recruited and a plan of action to revive these sectors was adopted: an interministerial committee will establish the new core areas for privatisation by the end of March 2004. Terms of reference for the recruitment of a business bank in charge of preparing tender documents were formulated.

CAMTEL

The invitation to tender for the execution of the minimum investment plan was launched.

With the consent of donor agencies, CAMTEL and the Government signed a provisional concession convention on 4 January 2004. The convention which has a duration of 2 (two) years renewable is accompanied with specifications. The convention allows for an investment of CFAF 26 thousand million within the framework of a minimum investment programme. The convention can be substituted any time by a final concession convention that could be granted to CAMTEL upon completion of the privatisation process.

The business plan was signed in December 2003.

The plan on tariff adjustment was adopted and implemented in December 2003.

Within the framework of the privatisation process at CAMTEL, MINFI launched an invitation to submit an expression of interest on 25 January 2004 for consultants and renowned business banks in view of delivering the following services: (i) audit of CAMTEL financial statements, (ii) drawing up of a privatisation strategy, and (iii) implementation of the privatisation strategy adopted by the Government.

SNEC

As concerns the privatisation of SNEC:

-Negotiations with the provisional bidder “La Lyonnaise des Eaux” were not satisfactory and the invitation to tender was declared unsuccessful in September 2003.

A plan of action for the revival of the privatisation process was discussed and prepared by MTNMEE, CTPL, the provisional management of SNEC and the World Bank. This plan which runs from October 2003 and June 2005 includes 5 phases: (i) a preliminary phase for the validation of the option to be retained and SNEC audits, (ii) a phase for the validation of missions of the potential partner, (iii) a phase for the pre selection of partners and preparation of draft tender documents, (iv) a phase for the finalisation of tender documents and creation of a new public body (since SNEC is to be liquidated) and (v) a phase for the selection and establishment of the bidder retained.

The invitation to submit an expression of interest for the recruitment of a consultant in charge of supporting the process to revive SNEC privatisation was launched early in January 2004.

  • The ARMP is fully operational;
  • The Prime Mnister, Head of Government presided over an interministerial meeting on 29 April 2004 to revise the draft code on public contracts before forwarding to the Presidency of the Republic for the Head of State’s approval.
Functioning of tender boards and specialized control boards in conformity with the regulation in forcePermanentSPM/ARMPThe summary report on audits of public contracts for the 2000/2001 financial year (June/July) was adopted by the board of directors of the ARMP; it is now available for consultation. A consultant (Cabinet 2 AC/ACP) was recruited in April 2003 to audit public contracts for the period running from 1 July 2001 to 31 December 2002. The report was submitted in February 2004. The final report on the audit of contracts covering the 2001 and 2002 period, and the transitional period was submitted by the auditor and approved. The report was available since March 2004 and was forwarded to Resident Representations of the World Bank and the IMF on 26 and 27 April 2004.

The final report on the evaluation of the transitional phase of the reform was submitted by the consultant on 23 April 2004 and forwarded to Resident Representations of the World Bank and the IMF on 26 and 27 April 2004 respectively. A round table for discussions on this report and the above mentioned reports was scheduled on 13 and 14 May 2004.

1.3 Pursue structural reforms
Completing the privatisation process of SNEC, CDC, and CAMTELClose of the privatisation of SNEC, CDC, and CAMTEL2003/05MINFIPlans of action were prepared with the support of the World Bank; execution has taken off.
Reducing time period at portProgress made in the reduction of time period at port2OO3/04MINTRANSMechanisms and actions in favour of the reduction of time period at port were put in place: FAL committee, committee for the reform of customs services, steering committee of the port reform, follow-up committee of the matrix of actions for the reduction of time period at port, green channel, unique check point, one-stop service.

Thanks to these actions, it was possible to: ensure an automatic custom targeting system, restructure and reduce the number of registered custom auditors, reduce the time period for the validation of cargo manifests, and rationalise technical controls.

For the first ten months of 2003, thanks to the progress made, port operations could last:

  • - from one and half to 2 and a half days for exports, depending on the type of good;
  • - 7 and half days for imports (depending on the harmonic average).




It should also be pointed out that this time period has considerably changed recently. As a matter of fact, it has moved from 25 and half days to almost 16 days between June and October 2003, which represents a steady decrease of close to 10 days for 4 successive months. Great efforts are thus made to attain a maximum of seven days for imports and two days for imports for the withdrawal of goods at the Douala port.
Additional measures are being taken, including permanent sensitisation of shippers, effective link between SYDONIA and GUCE, migration of PAGODE to SYDONIA and computerisation of the GUCE.

Follow-up of the execution of village development plans in the 3 pilot villages of the Centre province (end of February-beginning of April). In the Far North province, emphasis was first laidon the building of capacities of pilot villages before initiating the execution of their development;

3 (three components):
  • - capacity building of village committees, councils support bodies and the concerned ministries as well as external services;
  • - support to income generating activities: counselling and training in micro enterprise management specific technical training, establishment of a rotating guarantee;
  • - micro infrastructure: potable water supply; health, education, building of community infrastructure, road infrastructure, development of basic seeds and seedlings and installation of solar energy.


Component “capacity building”

  • - Organisation of a national workshop to harmonise village planning approaches and methods (19 June-23 June 2003)
  • - Organisation of provincial training workshops on village planning (23 July 11 August 2003: which brought together 17 structures from the Centre province and 15 from the Far North which were selected by way of invitation to submit an expression of interest on a competitive basis; Provincial workshops to build the capacity of committees and councils (8-12 September for the Far North and 8-11 December in the Centre)
  • - Continued preparation of villages in view of village planning with the collaboration of PGP A and PAAR, two structures that were in charge of selecting pilot villages in the two provinces concerned; Award of contracts for the first lots of villages in view of the execution of the village planning process (January 2004);

A provisional ceiling cost was determined for village planning while waiting for the conduct of a study on the real costs of the project. This will be done in collaboration with the GTZ Current instruments relating to public contracts are not adapted to community contracts (guideline of execution observed by the PADC), reflection with ARMP. Village blocks that hadnon objection were revived following the same procedures on the restricted consultation. Mobilisation of FIDA funds somehow. depends on the counterpart funds. For micro infrastructure specifically, FIDA does not bear taxes which are the sole responsibility of the Government





These pilot villages had a non objection for the execution of income generating g activities and micro infrastructure.

Preparing and executing the rural water supply master planPreparation and publication of the rural water supply master plan2004MINAGRIActions completed:



Discussions between MINAGRI, MINMEE and MINEPIA led to the identification of components of rural water supply: agricultural water supply (MINAGRI), rural water supply (MINMEE), pastoral water supply (MINEPIA). Secondary components were also identified: river and fish culture

Estimate cost for the preparation of the rural water supply master plan (PDHR) stood at CFAF 300 million. The PDHR will lead to programmes which will be implemented for about 50 years.

The 2004 PIB allows for 20 million for the financing of the study in view of the preparation of the agricultural master plan (PDHA). The financing concerns the diagnosis phase of this study.



Actions underway:

An invitation to tender is currently being prepared for the conduct of a study on the preparation of the agricultural water supply master plan (PDHA). It will pave the way for the preparation of the rural water supply master scheme with the involvement of the two other ministries concerned.

Consultations are revived to combine all the components of rural water supply. They will require additional resources that can be provided by the budget line “Studies of HIPC funds” or by MINEPAT.

Promoting the standardisation and quality controlPublication and enforcement of instruments relating to standardisation Number of norms adopted; mechanisms for the control of norms prepared, and control agents trained and equipped2003-2004MINDICProject is being finalised

- 250 national norms were prepared with 6 of them being compulsory. 34 enterprises were given a certification of conformity to these norms. 13 enterprises were certified on the basis of the system applied by foreign bodies given the conformity of their products to international standards. National enterprises are sensitised on the stakes of quality on a permanent basis. To this effect a national week on quality is organised by MINDIC on a yearly basis. Activities to control the respect of norms focused on two products, namely sheet metals and milk.

- Application of the norm on wheat flour led to the decrease in imports of this product: as a matter of fact it helped to save about CFAF 6 thousand million per year and create 7 new flour-mills and generate 600 new jobs. Cameroon has thus moved from the status of gross importer of flour to that of producer, then exporter of this product.

- Revision of the norm on cooking gas bottles, which aligned this product to the international norm helped reduce speculations on this product which led to constant shortages.

- Locally manufactured sheet metals were withdrawn from the market and sold in regional markets because they do not confirm to the international norm. Similarly, 15,000 imported sheet metals were withdrawn from the market Sanctions were meted on incriminated enterprises according to the law. Like for wheat flour, sheet metals are no longer imported by Cameroon since 2003 which led to an additional increase in currency.

- Lastly, 8 brands of milk were withdrawn from the market as a result of the application of the norm.
