(MENAFN) The UAE and Cameroon are mutually exploring chances in sectors like renewable energy, infrastructure and logistics.
Dr Thani Al Zeyoudi, Minister of State for Foreign Trade, led an Emirati delegation of business and investment leaders to Cameroon to discover chances and boost up UAE-Cameroon relations, based on a report by state news agency Wam on Tuesday.
The minister held many discussions on Cameroon’s expansion strategies and current logistics and infrastructure requirements as part of his trip.
