Thus, project owner; and government organizations now have an indispensable tool. For the former, the directory will enable them to carry out all forms of public purchases authorized by the procurement code. And for the latter, they will have access to local services. "The ARMP thus comes through this special bulletin to establish a link between government and economic actors in order to facilitate access to local services and contribute to the de facto promotion of private sector that meets the challenges of economic development in our country, "said David Martin Obami.

The special edition of this bulletin also addresses two major concerns: to promote the domestic private sector and promote the creation of wealth, where jobs are seen as a factor of social stability.

This bulletin is the result of a partnership between the Ministry of Small and Medium Enterprises and Handicraft and ARMP. Both partners are committed to the formation of large, small, medium, very small and craft in order to facilitate their access to public procurement. However, it is for potential candidates of public procurement to register their companies with the advertising media department. Furthermore, it is recommended that they develop the reflex to initiate spontaneous applications in order not to remain dependent on bids.

The directory will be updated in a time interval that will be defined.

"This work will continue (...) when the echo will expand, many will come to our doors. We need to do outreach to make it widely available, "declared David Martin Obami.
