Gabonese envoy entices Japanese investors at TICAD III

Libreville- Gabon (PANA) -- Gabonese ambassador to Japan, Christian Obame, has assured Japanese industrialists of attractive investment incentives in the Central African nation, officials said here Wednesday.
Ambassador Obame gave the assurance at a seminar Tuesday on the sidelines of 3rd Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD III) in Tokyo to brief Japanese businessmen on investment opportunities in Gabon that could enhance economic ties between the two countries.
"I would like Gabon to be the gateway of Japanese investments in countries of the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC)," Obame also affirmed.
Gabonese Foreign minister Jean Ping observed that Japanese industrialists were not fully represented in Gabon, adding, "There is need to do more.
