Cameroon’s ICT Sector to Improve the Country’s Investment Appeal

While there are more economically established countries, Cameroon is showing signs of becoming a prospective future investment destination. Although, the country is in need of less state interference, an improved regulatory environment and a stronger business infrastructure, it is witnessing technological advancement. Cameroon’s ICT sector is driven by a competitive market sector, providing low tariffs and resulting in increased voice call penetration. A nascent, but growing e-commerce sector has led to the rise of IT use in business in the country from 2010 to 2015. If the advancement in the IT sector could be coupled with public sector reform, Cameroon could increase its appeal to future investors. For more, please refer to our country briefing on Cameroon.
