Cameroon - Economic memorandum : Main report (English)

This report presents a comprehensive analysis of developments in Cameroon during the Third Development Plan period (1970/1-1975/6), the short-term outlook for the first two years (1976/7-1977/8) of the Fourth Development Plan, and the medium-term constraints, economic prospects to 1981, and financial policy alternatives open to the government; advocates a strategy for agricultural development through both industrial plantations and small holdings, a diversified agricultural sector, requiring a judicious mix of public intervention and support, and price and policy measures to stimulate private investment.
