The programme aims to prepare for the post-oil era through the diversification of the economy through rubber growing. More specifically, Phase II of the heveicole Programme follows Phase I and thus contributes to the implementation of Gabon's vast heveiculture programme (28,000 ha). The main components of the project are: A) roads and tracks; B) buildings; C) housing and transport; D) machinery, vehicles, equipment; E) CNER agricultural costs; F) factories; G) technical assistance; H) research; I) operation and; J) study, training.
The objectives of the programme are: (i) continue the maintenance of immature crops and their tracks, at the same time as it will start the exploitation of adult trees from the previous phase; (Mitzic II, Bitan I, Kango I); complete the Industrial Facilities of Mitzic; develop around the industrial sites a programme of medium-sized private village rubber plantations with the opening of collection tracks and access to these plantations from the plants.
