The Cameroon National Forum for Industries (FONAIC) has been organised in Yaounde from the 26th to the 27th June 2018. The exhibition that has been placed under the patronage of the President of the Republic, Paul Biya, seeks to promote Cameroon’s agricultural, forestry and mining potentials.
It will also be an occasion to popularize Cameroon’s master plan for industrialization and to mobilize actors likely to accompany Cameroon’s national industrial reconstruction.
The Cameroon Industrialization Master Plan that one of the pillars of the country’s ambitious programme to become an emergent nation by 2035 lays emphasis on transformation of local produce.
The Plan targets five strategic sectors including;
# Forest, Agro-industry, Biomass, Energy, Rail
# Digital Infrastructures & Economics;
#NGV (Natural Gas for Vehicles);
#Industrial Integration Urbanization-Habitat-Public Works;
#Textile, Cotton, Leather & transformation
The different sectors are expected to boost the national industrial reconstruction and make the country a hub in an Economic Community of Central African States.
Prior to the kickoff of the event, the Minister of Mines of Industry and Technological Development published a list of three hundred and sixty (360) priority industrial projects shortlisted for financing on the Ministry’s website (www.minmidt.cm).
The projects seek to promote the agricultural, forestry and mining potential of Cameroon.
The Ministry of Mines of Industry and Technological Development has drawn up a list of 360 priority industrial projects with financing needs. These include the Starch Production Unit for Corn, Cassava, and Associated Flour (Semolina) and the Solar Panel Manufacturing Unit.
During the two day event, reflexions will turn around the theme, “Agro-industry, a sanctuary of industrial reconstruction for the emergence of Cameroon”.
FONAIC which is in its first edition will be an opportunity for stakeholders to take stock of Cameroon’s industry potentials.
Round table discussions around sub themes have been scheduled for the first day of the events. They include mechanisms that contribute to the emergence of Cameroon and the ways of financing the industry. Products from certain pilot industries in Cameroon, as well as industrial services in will be on exhibition.
