160LES ATOUTS ECONOMIQUES DU CAMEROUNTrunk Road N° 8Kimbe-Wone-Mfaitok-Bachuo-Akagbe-Kumbe-Super KumbeOut of 240 km, 140 are asphalted.Trunk road N° 9Mbalmayo-Ngolbang-Sangmélima-Djoum-MintomThe 301.5-km road is partly asphalted, that is on its Mbalmayo-Sangmélima segment: 240 km.Trunk Road N° 10Yaoundé-Ayos-BonisAbout 328 km long, the main road is now entirely asphalted. The final act indicating official entry into service of the Ayos-Abong-mbang-Bonis road (192 km) was played recently with its inaugura- tion by Prime Minister, Head of Government. Thus, it joins the trunk road N° 10 at 10km or so from Bertoua and opens to the corridor which links up Cameroon to the Central African Republic and Chad. By the way, the road unveils a few tourist and anthropological assets, including the fantastic flow of River Nyong black water.Trunk Road N° 11Bamenda-Bambui-Bafut-WumOut of a 430-km route, a few part of the road, 37.60 km, is asphalted. From Bamenda to Wum, it goes through two cliffs, which compli- cate traffic during the rainy season. The cliffs are found: one between Bafut and the crossing of the Mezam River, and the other after the crossing of the Mentchum River. In fact, the same river changes its name from one Division to the other. Future asphalting of steep slopes, will highlyrelieve the populations of the locality full of mys- teries and unusual features that only a road can enable enhance.Trunk Road N° 12Magada –YagouaThe trunk road N0 12 is a side road of the trunk road N0 1. It goes from Magada to Yagoua up to the Chad border for a total of 144 km. Out of this, only two km still need to be asphalted. One should not mind arid climate; on the other hand, you need to stroll throughout the route at the night- fall to discover people enjoying life after a hard day’s work. The evening atmosphere is mostly fuelled by the sale of bilibili, a local beer highly consumed in the region. A return to Lara, a loca- lity 10 km away from Kaélé, here we are on the road to Mindif to admire the Peak; the same road leads to Maroua.Trunk Road N° 13Guidjiba-Tcholliré-Touboro-Chad borderIt is a 323-km totally dirt road.

A trip to Kolofata at a stone through to Nigeria will still do you some good. In this area where great reli- gious crusades used to take place, the most torrid dryness would not succeed stopping the foliage from spreading freshness the whole year round.Trunk road N° 1 is the longest road in Cameroon with 1,385 km
