Madagascar signs infrastructure modernisation deal with China

Madagascar has signed a modernisation agreement with China in a bid to overhaul its telecoms sector.

The Madagascar Tribune reported that the country’s Prime Minister Christian Ntsay signed the deal with the Chinese ambassador Yang Xiaorong.

The project aims to create new infrastructure for telecoms, establishing fibre optic links and data centres in order to modernise public services and drive down the cost of the administration’s internal communications.

Ntsay described the project as “a tool that will contribute to the security of the city of Antananarivo, all in a perspective of improving the investment climate, aimed inter alia development through socio-economic and environmental investments, so that the efforts made in such a reform will lead to real transformations at the city level, indeed for all of Madagascar”.
