Cameroon remains the economic locomotive of CEMAC. It represents 45% of GDP within the subregion and has an expected growth rate of 4.6% for 2023. Despite unfavourable global economic conditions, the home of the Indomitable Lions has proven the resilience of its economy – the most diverse in the region – driven by the large quantities of natural and agricultural resources.
In an effort to continue on its growth trajectory, the government is now extending an invitation to local and international private sector stakeholders to invest more than 60% of the resources necessary to implement the structural transformation set out in the 2020-2030 National Development Strategy, estimated at 37,500 billion CFA francs.
To this end, the AFRICA CEO FORUM has decided to organise in partnership with Ecobank Cameroon “Invest in Cameroon”, an online event. The aim of the event is to highlight and describe the country’s investment opportunities in the areas of infrastructure, agro-industry, digital technology and energy.
- Panel of top-level economic players to debate Cameroon’s ecosystem: business climate, dynamic sectors, reform agenda;
- Three workshops with leaders from the public and private sectors on investment opportunities in each sector.
