Overview of country economy and private sector landscape
Cameroon was created in 1961 by the unification of two former colonies, one British and one French. The country has significant natural resources, including oil and gas, high-value timber species, minerals, and agricultural products, which is reflected in the scope of private sector enterprise.
The private sector plays an important role in national health funding, with extractive companies appearing as major development partners through their CSR programmes. While these collaborations with the government exist, no formal national platforms for private sector engagement appear to exist.

 A ranking of 1 would equate to the highest ease of doing business, with a regulatory environment conducive to the starting and operation of a local firm.
