Economic mission to Cameroon

Are you looking for business opportunities in the Cameroonian market? More generally, would you like to do business in Central Africa? Do not miss our economic and trade mission to Yaoundé, coinciding with the PROMOTE 2022 trade fair, from February 19 to 25, 2022.

Cameroon is a country rich in natural resources. Its territory enjoys a strategic geographical position: open on to the Gulf of Guinea and located at the intersection of Central and West Africa.

As a result of the “Vision 2035” programme for sustainable development and the EU-Central Africa Economic Partnership Agreements (EPA) promoting international trade, the country’s entrepreneurship and industry environments have been constantly improving for the past few years and Cameroon is now trying to attract international business partners and investors. 

Capitalize on our prospecting stand at the Promote 2022 trade fair

PROMOTE is the most important multisectoral trade fair in Central Africa.

The trade fair’s 8th edition, on the theme of “the industrialisation of Africa, a key to the emergence of the Continent”, will provide exhibitors with a golden opportunity to establish multiform partnerships.

As the thousands of attendees exhibiting on their country-pavilion, join our prospective stand and capitalize on:

  • a list of local business contacts compiled for B2B meetings, instigated by Martin Abega, Cameroonian consultant and honorary consul in Holland;
  • exposure given by the trade fair’s flyers.
