Canada and the Republic of Cameroon have had very friendly bilateral relations since 1962. This relationship is centered on shared economic prosperity, democracy promotion, respect for human rights, good governance, regional peace and security.
Trade and investment between both countries is on the rise especially with the signing of the Foreign Investment Promotion Agreement in March 2014 and the Air Transport Agree in 2017. The Canadian government has also increased assistance especially in health, education, governance and humanitarian relief.
Ever since the outbreak of the armed conflict in the Southwest and Northwest regions, Canada has increased its financial support and has been committed in seeking a durable resolution of the conflict.
It is within this backdrop that the Nkafu Policy Institute will host His Excellency Richard Bale, for an hourlong conversation on strengthening Canada-Cameroon relations.
This conversation’s main objective is to explore the full diplomatic relationship between Canada and the Republic of Cameroon. The conversation will allow us to explore, amongst others:
- Political cooperation
- Contributions to Peace and Security in Cameroon and the subregion
- Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy
- Trade and investment cooperation
- Democracy and Human Rights, etc
At the end of the conversation, we expect that participants will have a better understanding of:
- Canada-Cameroon partnership and areas to further strengthen collaboration
