T he new ways of trade transactions that the Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) are imposing on the business environment are such that no country can remain indifferent. For the past three years, all major public discourse in the country have centred on the need for individuals and government partners to put hands on deck and make the most out of the ICTs. Thus, the 15-17 May, 2017 gathering of ICT experts in Yaounde is being inscribed as a benchmark in the Strategic Plan for the Development of the Digital Economy in the country. Organised under the patronage of the Head of State, the Yaounde Forum is not only coming as follow up to the May 2016 International Economic Conference, “Investing in Cameroon, Land of Attractiveness”, but it also comes to underline the capital role of the ICTs in the economic value-chain in Cameroon. With a 5 per cent contribution to the GDP in Cameroon in 2016, the target for 2020 set by government to render the sector more viable is considerably instructive. Apart from a GDP of 10 per cent in 2020, the 10,000 jobs created in 2016 are estimated to increase to 50,000 while the tax income should be able to move from FCFA 136 billion to FCFA 300 billion. The bustling presence of start-ups, especially in the university environments in Cameroon, is indicative of the fact that the figures being elaborated by the State are far from propaganda. An enormous human resource-base does exist. Inviting nearly 200 participants at the Yaounde gathering from across the globe, who are a reference within the ICTs domain, further demonstrates the ambitions of the government to provide the Eco-system or favourable environment for the venture to witness geometric progression. Although energy supply still remains a critical obstacle to surmount, the successes recorded by mobile telephone companies in the country point to existing chances for digital economic prospects. Another incentive is certainly the enactment, of Law N° 2010/012 of 21 December 2010 on Cyber Security and Cyber Criminality and Law N° 2010/013 on Electronic Communication in the country. Such measures constitute a step in the right direction as they set the bases to check nefarious acts by con men that often tarnish the country’s image. The same hope lies in the 3G licences given to mobile telephone companies in 2014 and 2015. The impatience by MTN and Orange Cameroon to migrate to the 4G network all show that the potential exists and only needs to be harnessed.
