Cameroon Economic Outlook

  • Despite the security and humanitarian crisis in the region, Cameroonian growth remains strong at above 5%.
  • However, falling oil prices and rising security spending will weigh heavily on the fiscal accounts.
  • Decentralisation and inclusion could be used as leverage to restructure the economy and translate the growth into social improvements.
