Livestock: Upgraded facilities

New processing and refrigerated warehouse facilities at the Etoudi cattle market in Yaoundé will provide up to 5,000 jobs by 2016. Similar facilities are to be built at three other sites in Cameroon to help meet increasing demand for livestock products across the Central African region.
