(Business in Cameroon) - The Cameroonian Minister of Trade, Luc Magloire Mbarga Atangana (photo), announced on April 30, 2014, that the Central African Monetary and Economic Community (CEMAC) cabinet approved 19 Cameroonian companies, representing 145 products, for the CEMAC preferential system. Mr Magloire revealed that the said companies will officially receive their approval on May 2, 2014 at a ceremony held in Yaoundé.
