Cameroon Telecommunications and Broadband Reports

Cameroon Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Market Forecasts Report
Despite its oil resources and favourable agricultural conditions, Cameroon’s GDP growth of between 2% and 4% over the past several years has lagged behind other countries in the region, mainly as a result of a generally unfavourable climate for business enterprise and a high level of corruption. The International Monetary Fund is pressing for more reforms, including increased budget transparency, privatisation, and poverty reduction programs.
