Year-on-year, this volume of revenue, revealed on January 28, 2020, in Yaoundé, during the celebration of World Customs Day, is up by XAF46.7 billion compared to the XAF925 billion collected during the 2018 fiscal year.
“The performance of customs units gives rise to optimism. This is all the more important at this time when the urgency is to maximize non-oil resources to strengthen our economic resilience,” Finance Minister Louis Paul Motaze said.
