Extractive industries

Cameroon has a wealth of untapped mining, gas and quarrying resources. The Cameroonian government has drawn up a framework for the deployment of its development policy, identifying the extractive sector as one of its driving forces. The oil sector already makes a significant contribution to Cameroon’s public budget. These resources can therefore be useful in ensuring the development of the Cameroonian people. But for this to happen, the right mechanisms must be put in place, and effective management must be ensured.
