Francois has been known to say:
As far as life and the Nation Building are concerned, I believe Cameroon has a very bright future in the years ahead. Our country is about to become a rich and stable nation if five minor
conditions/factors are properly adhered to.
The recommendations are captured below:
1. A continuous dialogue with Anglophones, including any tribalistic issue(s) arising in the country.
2. Transparency: We should prioritize the purging of corruption and poor governance as a top priority.
3. The creation of strong Agricultural companies to produce food in an industrial manner. The implementation of an Agro-industry with practical incentives and less bureaucratic requirements.
4. The opening of job opportunities to the majority of people in Cameroon, based on social justice, equity and skills.
5. Cameroon: A pillar of Commerce and Exportations in Africa: If we have a plan in the next five years to multiply by five our actual Cocoa production, coffee, corn (instead of importing it from South Africa), plantain, peanut, beef, poultry, etc. Also, to open new modern markets (and eliminate dirty ones), we will automatically become a powerful economy in Central Africa. It is just a matter of political will from the country’s leadership. For example, let’s take into consideration how Ivory Coast develops its Cocoa. They have the policy to distribute young trees (about 3 million each) to all the eleven provinces of the country. Currently, ranking as the # 1 Cocoa producer of the world. Ivory Coast produces over 2 million tons of cocoa beans against only 200 thousand for Cameroon. In cash, Ivory Coast makes 2000 billion FCFA only on Cocoa sales.
Cameroon should work on becoming a great agricultural producer. This will help ensure that both businesses and jobs will be created. To our personal point of view, there are no plans yet to reach this goal, as the President of the Republic called for more production by reducing our importations while enhancing our exportation. Such a call will never happen if new Big companies are not created. In order to make things happen, we strongly believe that it should be voted in the Parliament, that over 60 % of the 2023 National Budget should be dedicated to a type of Marshall Plan for the Development of Agro-industry in Cameroon, in order to avoid that money to be stolen, it should directly go to every region and evenly distributed.
