Overview About International Trade in Cameroon

Main Industry Sectors

The primary sector contributes almost to a quarter of the GDP and employs approximately 50% of the active population. Before the initiation of the oil trade, agriculture was the country's economic pillar. Cameroon remains one of the world's leading producers of certain foodstuffs, namely cocoa, coffee, bananas, palm products, tobacco, rubber and cotton. Fishing and forestry are two of the country's additional important activities. Cameroon's mineral resources include bauxite ore and iron.

The secondary sector accounts for almost a quarter of the GDP. The country's main industries are food processing, sawmill, the manufacture of light consumer goods and textiles.

The tertiary sector accounts for half of the GDP. It benefits from the economic activity created around the Doba/Kribi oil pipeline, which has been in operation since July 2004. The services sector is booming with telecommunications, air traffic and transport.
