Details

Cameroon is the largest economy in the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CEMAC). Cameroon’s economy is primarily agricultural, with principal commercial crops being cocoa, coffee, tobacco, cotton and bananas. Proceeds from oil exports were the country’s predominant source for foreign exchange earnings, as well as a substantial source of its government revenue.

Cameroon enjoys peace and political stability. As a member of the Franc zone, the country benefits from the stability of the currency, CFA Franc (XAF) which is pegged to Euro at a fix rate.

Economic growth is expected to accelerate over the next five years period, from an official estimate of 4.1% in 2011 to an average of 4.5% in 2012-16, as the country is in the implementation process of the first phase of its long term development plan Vision Cameroon 2035.
