Comores - Assistance technique pour l'élaboration du plan directeur de production, de transport et de distribution de l'énergie électrique et d'une coopération avec le secteur de l'énergie de Côte d'ivoire - Project Appraisal Report

L’inadéquation des infrastructures...

Comoros - Road Network Rehabilitation Project- Rehabilitation Of Rn2 (Moroni – Foumboumi): Moroni - Ouroveni Section - Project Appraisal Report

Economic activities in the country are essentially concentrated in the agricultural and tertiary sectors. Thus, the rehabilitation and, to a lesser extent, extension of the national road network will contribute to the development of the tourism and fishing sectors identified as potential growth poles for the national economy.
