Cameroon’s Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute inaugurated on Monday in the capital Yaounde the week-long Cameroon’s International Trade Exhibition dubbed PROMOTE, the biggest government support trade event in the country.
In the last six editions of PROMOTE, about 5,000 enterprises from all over had taken part in the trade exhibition. “I have no doubt that participants of this edition will take advantage of its several opportunities,” Ngute told participants at the start of the fair held at the Yaounde Conference Center.
Cameroon was one of the best destinations for investment in Africa, he said.
Nearly 1,000 exhibitors from Asia, Europe, America and Africa are attending the trade fair, said Cameroon’s Minister of Commerce Luc Magloire Mbarga Atangana.
“This (trade fair) is now a veritable market not only for Cameroon but for the world. This seventh edition of the trade fair is likely to produce significant positive effects on our economy,” Atangana told Xinhua.
According to Inter Progress, an event management institution that is organizing the trade fair, the exhibition showcases a wide range of local and foreign products, including equipment, machinery, materials for agriculture, cosmetics, dairy products and electronic items. The trade fair ends on Feb. 24. Enditem
