(Business in Cameroon) - According to Cameroon's Minister of Posts and Telecommunications (Minpostel) Minette Libom Li Likeng (photo), the vision of the Head of State, who has given the go for the country's digital transformation in recent years, is that “no one should be left behind in the digital revolution.

Minette Libom Li Likeng (photo), who was speaking on November 25, 2019, in Yaoundé, at the opening of a two-day meeting between Camtel (the incumbent telecoms operator) and players in the electronic communications sector, called on local authorities to become more involved in the development of the digital economy in Cameroon.

Whether it is the development of ICT infrastructure, access to the Internet or provision of ICT services, the decentralized territorial community is at the heart of the process when it comes to reaching local populations. In this context, digital development is becoming a means of stimulating the economic and social development of decentralized local authorities, thanks to the opportunities it offers,” the official explains.  

Minette Libom Li Likeng then wished to see these territorial entities “gradually take on the challenges of digital development.” “The digital revolution should not be seen by communities as a risk, but rather as a real opportunity. Digital tools save time and at the same time simplify and improve services offered to users. However, this transformation implies a cultural and behavioural evolution that must lead communities to rethink their operating methods and managerial practices,” she argues.
