Cameroon is often described as ‘Africa in miniature’. It attracts a lot of businesses, and has the highest number of trademark filings in central Africa.
Cameroon is booming and many international brands are vying for dominant positions in its markets. For example, Coca-Cola, Heineken, Renault and Toyota all have a presence in Cameroon. Big telecommunications brands such as MTN, Orange, Nokia, Siemens and Alcatel are there too. It is a good destination for businesses with large international brands.
