Cars bearing the trade mark Cameroon Auto, will soon be manufactured and assembled in the coastal town of kribi in the days ahead.
The made in Cameroon vehicles’ project is the outcome of a partnership between the government of Cameroon and a Chinese car manufacturing company. If effective, Cameroon will become the first country in the central African sub region to assemble cars.
According to official sources, the project is expected to create 6000 direct and indirect jobs and will be accessible to a wider public. Even though a similar convention signed with an Indian car manufacturer is yet to be materialised, Cameroonians are however very anxious about the Kribi project. During an official launch of the project in yaounde on April 20, the car samples were presented. It will be exhibited at a week long auto fair to take place at the multipurpose sports complex.
