Business Environment

Cameroon has experienced economic growth in recent years, mainly due to the country's relative diversified economy and political stability. Cameroon has modest oil and gas resources, and significant potential in the power and mining resources. The country is a member of the Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa. Cameroon is a good partner for Canada in Central Africa. We see very good export and investment opportunities across a wide range of sectors that match Canadian capabilities.
