Known as "Africa in miniature," the Republic of Cameroon is a vast ethnic and linguistic jigsaw with both Francophone and Anglophone regions that is home to more than 200 different linguistic groups.
The variety of wildlife at a large number of natural parks in the country provides nature lovers with plenty of chances to spot rare and exotic creatures. The public transport is also better than many other African countries, providing tourists with swifter travel around the country.
Cameroon's tourism industry continues to blossom, taking advantage of the country's natural treasures. The total contribution of Travel and Tourism to Cameroon's GDP was 2.45 billion US dollars, or 7.2 percent of GDP, in 2017, and is forecast to rise by 4.6 percent in 2018, according to the most recent Economic Impact report by the World Travel and Tourism Council.
Since the country established diplomatic ties with China in 1971, the bilateral trade between the two countries has reached 1.95 billion US dollars and is expected to develop further in the future.
