Cameroon Agribusiness Report Q2 2016

BMI View: Cocoa remains Cameroon's most important cash crop. We hold a bullish view on the country'scocoa production as it has ample room for growth and an increasingly stable access to export markets.

Over the remainder of our forecast period to 2018/19 we believe improved production techniques will givecocoa farmers new opportunities to sell greater quantities of beans on international markets. More broadly,we see growth in the production and consumption of all key soft commodities in Cameroon, including sugarand coffee. Increasing government will help to maintain investment and growth in these crops.
