The National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism (NCPBM) amongst other things, saw the opening of its regional offices across Cameroon in 2023.
Operating just from Yaounde was a major issue for the Commission which has to serve Cameroonians irrespective of location hence the existence of regional branches is like an answered prayer.
Chairing the second bi-annual session of the Commission for the 2023 financial year, the President, Peter Mafany Musonge highlighted this breakthrough and other successes, rating the Commission 90% for accomplishments this year.

The Commission was also able to carry out sensitization campaigns across the country.
From universities to hospitals, diplomatic missions, government offices and even the forces of law and order, the NCPBM went round, checking the implementation of bilingualism in all these sectors.
The Commission also renewed its partnership with Civil Society Organisations in the fight against hate speech and xenophobia.
Added to this was the organisation of a National Campaign against Hate Speech and Xenophobia.
Peter Mafany Musonge congratulated his team for taking part in the Government Action Fair (SAGO) for the second time, in 2023 where they received an award for the best organised conference.
In spite of the successes recorded, the President noted that there is still work to be done especially at the level of staffing the regional offices. This is one of the priority issues for 2024.
The NCPBM’s second bi-annual session ended with a call on all members to keep up the good work and even do better in 2024.
