(Business in Cameroon) - The Cameroonian government is planning, in partnership with the Agency for Standards and Quality (Anor) and associations of craftsmen, the development of standards for handicraft products. Measures will boost the products’ competitiveness on the international market.

“We have commenced this process, which is only the first step towards providing our craftsmen with standards that will define production guidelines and meet international requirements for crafts,” explains Achille Bassilekin (photo), Cameroon's Minister for SMEs, the Social Economy and Crafts.

Cameroon has about 70,000 craftsmen in various sectors (wood, textiles, construction, leather, agribusiness, steel, etc.), 80% of whom work in the informal sector, according to the crafts department.
