(Business in Cameroon) - Wijma, a Dutch logger operating in Cameroon for several years now, has closed one of its factories in the country. The closed sawmill, Cameroon Agricultural and Forestry Exploitation Compagny SA (Cafeco), is located in the town of Nguti, in the southwestern region currently plagued by the Anglophone crisis.

According to the International Tropical Timber Organization’s (ITTO) report that reveals the news, this move by Wijma is the result not only of the socio-political crisis in Cameroon's Anglophone regions, but also of the difficulties encountered at the port of Douala.

However, the company continues operations in its CFK plant, which makes it possible to “offset the loss in azobe-ekki wood production by Cafeco”, the ITTO report said.
