Welcome to Cameroon

Paul_Biya_2014His Excellency Mr Paul Biya
President of Cameroon

I am pleased to welcome you to the portal of the Republic of Cameroon at the website of the Commonwealth of Nations.

As you may already know, Cameroon is “Africa in miniature” as it spans the Atlantic Coast at the elbow of the Gulf of Guinea, passing through evergreen forests, going over rolling mountains with savannah vegetation that gradually fades into sandy lowlands that culminate at Lake Chad at the Northern tip of the country.

Cameroon has always been committed to peace, democracy and the prosperity of its people, values which are equally upheld by the Commonwealth. Under my stewardship the country has witnessed great strides in democracy and the respect of human rights, moving from the single party to multi-party politics since 1990. The recent creation of a national commission of human rights and an independent elections organ (Elections Cameroon) are testimony of the progress we have made.

The economic environment in the country is also very favourable for foreign investments as there are ongoing projects to update infrastructure and increase power supply to industries and households. My country is also home of the most admirable African soccer side, the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

I wish you to learn more about the beautiful country that is Cameroon on this website.
