Top 5 Projects in Cameroon

Cameroon has more than $10 billion of active projects, of which $3 billion is under construction. The population will increase by 27 per cent over the next decade, increasing demand for infrastructure.

Growing at 27 per cent, Cameroon’s population will increase to 35 million over the next ten years from the current 27 million. Based on analysis done by ABiQ, Cameroon is a mid-tier country and ranked in the mid-twenties in Africa for both GDP growth and GDP per capita. However, it is ranked 39th in Africa, looking at over market risk.
