Cameroon

Cameroon Economic Outlook

  • The economy bounced back in 2012, stimulated by the recovery in the oil sector and strong domestic demand, which was in turn driven by investments in infrastructure. This trend should continue in 2013 and 2014.
  • Relative macroeconomic stability could be undermined by the maintenance of subsidies on oil products.
  • Despite ongoing social policies, Millennium Development Goal (MDG) indicators highlight the scale of challenges to be met against a background of strong population pressure.
