“It is intended to better fight against illegal forestry exploitation,” Cameroonian Minister of Forestry and Wildlife Jules Doret Ndongo told reporters in the capital of Yaounde.

The platform will improve on collection of taxes, curb corruption and deal with administrative bottlenecks, Ndongo said, adding that Cameroon will introduce a legal framework to make the use of the platform binding to all parties. Enditem
