The two officials talked on ways of promoting “Made in Cameroon”as the June 29 date draws near

Among the many things they had on agenda, was the upcoming Wood Fair, due to hold from June 29, to July 4, 2021, at the Conference Centre in Yaounde. The fair comes barely after persons with a similar interest savoured offers that could come as a spinoff of the 2020 United Kingdom-Cameroon Business Day.

Though the organisation of the upcoming event has been ceded to “Association Artisan au Féminin,” it is still backed by several stakeholders like the UK High Commission. Things shall unfold under the tutelage of the Ministries of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises and that of Forestry and Wildlife.

Elsewhere, the officials discussed on the terms of the climate-related tasks, which this exhibition is in line with. They deliberated on the UN Climate Change Conference, to be hosted by the UK from November 1-12, 2021 in Glasgow. As such, both parties agreed to put together, a joint plan of activities. This plan should be enforced with environmental, industrial and commercial implications in mind, such that Cameroonian SMEs could tap the best of it.
