The growth of the population of Africa along with the emergence of middle-income class will result into an increased demand of agro-food products and housing.

In Africa, one of our targeted countries is Cameroon. This country, located in Central Africa region, has an important potential of agricultural development considering the available arable lands and favourable geo-climate conditions. WiP's partners being over 90% nationals of Cameroon have the advantage to know their country, its potentials and administration.

According to 2014 country figures, Cameroon, a lower middle income country, has a population estimated at approximately 23 Million while the country gross domestic product (GDP) amounted to US$32.5 Billion with a GDP growth rate of 5.9%, gross national income per capita amounting to US$1,350 and 1.9% inflation rate (source: World Bank).

The strategic geographical location of Cameroon at the heart of the Central Africa region places the country at a quasi-equidistance to Europe, the American continent, Middle-East and the Indian sub-continent, West Africa, North Africa, East Africa and Southern Africa. It should also be noted that Cameroon is close to the two Sub-Saharan largest markets, namely the neighbouring Nigeria (the most populated country in Africa) and Democratic Republic of Congo (the 4th most populated country in the African continent). This position offers an exceptional opportunity for investment.

Agriculture

Cameroon, located in Central Africa region, has an important potential of agricultural development considering the available arable lands and favourable geo-climate conditions.

10th world palm-oil producer and 3rd African producer after Nigeria (940,000 tons) and Côte d'Ivoire (417,000 tons), Cameroon has produced 235,000 metric tons of palm-oil in 2014, while the national demand exceeds 340,000 tons according to the latest figures released by the ministry of agriculture, Cameroon. As a result, the country's production deficit amounts to 100,000 tons, giving opportunity for palm-oil development.
It is to be noted that Palm-oil production to an industrial scale constitutes a strategic thrust of the development agenda of the Government of Cameroon.
