Xinhua News Agency, Yaound é, November 14 (Reporter Qiao Benxiao Zhang Yimeng) the completion ceremony of China's "Wan Cun Tong" Cameroon project was held on the 14th in the city of Mfu, near the capital Yaound é.

Chinese Ambassador to Cameroon Wang Yingwu said at the ceremony that the "Wan Cun Tong" project opened a new window for thousands of Cameroon villagers. China will continue to uphold the concept of truthfulness, friendship and sincerity, and promote the continuous development of friendly cooperation between the two countries.
Felix Zog, secretary-general of the Cameroon Department of Public Information, who attended the ceremony, thanked the Chinese Government and Sida Times Group, which is responsible for the implementation of the project, and praised the friendly cooperation between the two countries for adding to their achievements.
On the day of the ceremony, reporters saw a satellite TV receiver with a Chinese aid sign installed on the roof of a peasant house, and the news program of the BRICS Summit in Brasilia was clearly broadcast on the inside of the house.
Joan Gee, a 63-year-old villager, told reporters excitedly that he was finally able to watch colorful TV shows at home like city dwellers.
It is understood that Sida Times Group has also trained a large number of local engineers in Cameroon to provide continuous technical support for the operation and maintenance of the project.
