(Business in Cameroon) - In H1, 2019, Cameroon’s customs raised XAF364 billion of customs revenues, the authority informs. This is XAF6.8 billion more than the XAF357.5 billion raised in H1, 2018.

The performance could have been better, but for the XAF47.2 billion and XAF56.6 billion yet to be collected from the government and SONARA respectively, the customs general directorate indicates. In addition, the directorate adds, XAF3.6 billion of customs revenues were not collected because of the economic partnership with the European Union.
