(Business in Cameroon) - Familiarise experts in the Cameroonian public administrations with the contents of the Industrialisation Master Plan (PDI) recently adopted by the Cameroonian government to turn Cameroon into “the factory of the new industrial Africa” by 2050. This is the objective of a seminar chaired in Yaoundé by the Minister of Industry, Ernest Gbwaboubou.
As a reminder, the PDI adopted by the Cameroonian government is based on the development of three priority sectors. These are the agro-industry, energy and the digital sector which, considering the impact that their development can have on the rest of the economy, were described as real industrial “sanctuaries” by the experts in charge of developing the PDI.
According to the Cameroonian public authorities, the implementation of the PDI should help increase by 11 points the contribution of the industrial sector to the creation of the country's GDP, taking it from the current 13% to at least 24% by 2035.
