The first German-Cameroonian Business for Development Forum brings together more than 100 German and Cameroonian companies, associations and diaspora representatives on 1 June. Cameroon is still an untapped market for many German companies. Yet the country shows a lot of potential as a hub for Central Africa. Especially in areas that are also important for the sustainable development of the country - rural development, health and digital - it is worthwhile for German companies to get involved.

Benin has opened up strongly to foreign investment in recent years. Thanks to significant economic policy reforms, the partner country of the G20 Compact with Africa initiative offers business opportunities in numerous sectors, including logistics, digitalisation and agribusiness. The processing industry in particular is booming! 45 kilometres from the capital Cotonou is a 1,200-hectare special economic zone, specifically for agricultural products. In the course of the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), this is likely to gain further importance. However, the West African country is dependent on the commitment of the private sector to drive forward the transformation to a sustainable agricultural and food economy.

As of today, it has made itself heard and can proclaim itself a key partner for big economic powers. Which future awaits for Africa and what type of cooperation with Europe?

To discuss this challenges, La Tribune and La Tribune Afrique are holding the Africa-Europe Summit’s second edition on May 15th at the MUCEM and on May 16th at the Palais du Pharo in Marseille.
