He mentioned areas of common concern which the UK and the government of Cameroon are working on to find lasting solutions notably security, prosperity, fairness and on tackling illegal wildlife trade. High Commissioner Laxton also highlighted the role played by British businesses in Cameroon, contributing to a clean, well-managed economy in Cameroon, transferring skills and knowledge and reinvesting responsibly in their local communities.

Rowan Laxton said:

We are all affected by the same global issues- whether they are opportunities to make the world a better place such as education and trade or challenges such as climate change and cyber security. Countries therefore need to work together.
