(Business in Cameroon) - On September 26, 2019, in Yaoundé, Cameroon, the Brazilian embassy will organize an agribusiness seminar. During the seminar, organized in collaboration with the chamber of agriculture Capef and Brazilian company IBSS-Agronomy, the Latin-American country’s experience will be shared with Cameroon.

Let’s note that this meeting is organized at a time marked by Cameroonian authorities’ will to develop local production and boost processing in order to reduce the importation of food products.

“About 30 years ago, Brazil was an important food products’ importer. Presently, it is the largest food products’ exporter in the world and a reference in the field of tropical agriculture. This change is the result of researches conducted by the Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária (Embrapa), an institution created by the government in the late 1970s to boost the country’s agricultural production and reverse the trade balance as far as food products are concerned,” the embassy indicates.
