Industry & Mining

With 5% growth in the secondary sector in 2014, Gabon’s industrialisation continues apace under the Emerging Gabon plan, supported by investors in agro-industry, construction materials, forestry and petrochemicals. Special economic zones are being developed to process raw commodities into products with higher value added, fed partly by new projects in the mining sector.

This chapter includes interviews with Christophe Akagha-Mba, Minister of Mines, Industry and Tourism; and Fabrice Nzé-Békalé, CEO, Société Equatoriale des Mines (SEM).
