Bloomberg quoted Mr Paul Tasong permanent secretary at the economy ministry as saying that a group of South Korean companies will draw up a plan to expand Cameroon's rail network by May 2011.

Mr Tasong said that the rail system is needed to connect infrastructure projects, such as the Lom Panga hydroelectric reservoir in the east and the Memve'ele hydroelectric project in the south, and iron ore and bauxite mines.

He added that "The government wants to regulate the system, layout the rules and set out the standards for potential companies to follow."

It may be noted that Cameroon has one main railway line built during the colonial period that runs from the port city of Douala to Ngaoundere in the heart of the country.
