The Cameroonian Government has banned all parastatal executives from flying first class while embarking on officials trips.
According to a circular from the PM’s office on the execution of the 2018 budget, the decision is in a bid to optimize revenue management in rational public spending.
It noted that all board chairs, administrators, directors, general managers of state owned establishments and their deputies are to travel on business class for official missions abroad by air.
According to the Ministry of Finance, most executives travel out for their personal affairs on company revenue; they use money from the company to pay for their travel allowances.
The circular also advised these executives to use the most direct and less costly routes, for official missions.
