Catalyzing Africa's Economic Transformation

Fonctionnement normal


Good Governance is catalyst for development in central Africa.


Nous devons travailler ensemble pour se développer pensons à des politiques complémentaires afin d'atteindre le développement de nos pays.


"We should differentiate governance from government and make sure that the human being should be at the centre of policies, this in order to attain economic development."
Mr. Pooran Chandra.


FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) is still increasing in Central Africa, despite the existence of poor governance. The entrepreneur, the investor, looks at his private benefits by looking at the market demand. This therefore means that good governance is not the only factor for economic growth. prof. Ongo Emmanuel.



“La bonne gouvernance instaure et maintient des politiques redistributives qui assurent le bien-être de tous les citoyens.”
Dr. Owona A. Charles


Pour garantir un climat des affaires idéal, la bonne gouvernance commande d’aller au delà des organismes de contrôle pour assurer un suivi-évaluation des politiques publiques.


Good governance is not the magic stike; we should rely on the "invisible hand" concept of Adam Smith.


“La bonne gouvernance n'existe pas. C'est un néologisme et il existe d'autres facteurs qui expliquent le développement économique.
Si l'on evalue 2 ou 3 indicateurs forts de croissance car on realisera que les conditions de vie n'ont pratiquement pas changé depuis 1990 dans la CEEAC.”
Prof. Ongo Emmanuel


“La bonne gouvernance est fondamentale et peut être nécessaire mais n’est pas la panacée qui garantira le développement économique en Afrique Centrale.”
Prof. Ongo Emmanuel


"La governance est la gestion des charges domestiques, gérer en bon père de famille qui est donc une affaire de responsabilité."

Startup Act (the law regulating startups) should create an enabling mechanism that will follow up the regulatory framework around startup and define the role of each ministry as Startups are concerned.

It is advisable to build strong partnerships between state institutions with financial, development and international institutions in order to establish a solid startup Act.

Un est primordial pour la création et le développement des startups:
- instaurer un environment réglementaire favorable
- Créer des emplois et favoriser le développement économique
- Favoriser l’éducation et l’innovation entrepreneuriales
- Assurer la compétitivité et la reconnaissance à l’échelle mondiale.

Une startup est une entreprise nouvellement créée qui se concentre sur la commercialisation de produits, de services ou de modèles d’affaires innovantes avec un potentiel de croissance rapide et d’évolutivité (OCDE, 2018) & (WEF, 2019).


Le gouvernement cherche à atteindre un taux de croissance à deux chiffres, à augmenter la part de l’industrie à 25% et à réduire la pauvreté à 10% d’ici 2035 (SND 30). Pour atteindre ces objectifs, il est nécessaire de promouvoir les start-ups au Cameroun.


Presentation of a Briefing Report on the “Need of a StartUp Act in Cameroon” is the subject of this stakeholders meeting which is currently taking place in Yaounde at Mansel hotel. We are glad to share our research outputs with about 30 stakeholders. Their contributions are quite enriching.

And it costs you nothing. You lose nothing. Nothing decreases in your life when you decided to encourage someone, to build someone up, to use what God has given you to increase the value of someone else.

Encouragement matters, because often we are afraid... we are confused... we are lost and are not sure what to do next.

Encouragement gives us the *courage* to continue on when we want to give it all up.

With the flame God has given you, you can freely light the flame of others and help them keep going when they feel they have nothing left.

For a group of people suffering under eminent persecution, Paul wrote this to the Thessalonian believers,

"For God chose to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us. Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when he returns, we can live with him forever. *So encourage each other and build each other up*..." (1 Thessalonians 5:9-11)

Those of us who call ourselves Christians are doing our best to follow Jesus. But sometimes...

..we just need some help.
..we just need some motvation.
..we just need someone to come along side us.

We just need encouragement.

Today, choose to encourage someone. Choose to build someone up. Choose to be the flame that lights another flame, or keeps another flame going.

After all, it costs you nothing...

And it can give them everything.

Keep Thinking!

Bon Début de Semaine

It was a pleasure hosting the webinar on the theme: "𝑫𝒆𝒎𝒐𝒄𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒛𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏: 𝒂𝒏 𝑨𝒇𝒓𝒊𝒄𝒂 𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒑𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒗𝒆". our panelists highlighted the following points:
- Africa is a politically diverse continent with challenges specific to each region so, democratic solutions should correspond to the context.
- A common challenge which several African countries face is that of the weakness of its democracy, therefore, it is important for Africans to become more involved in politics.
- Africa needs to have citizens and not just inhabitants.
- Coup d'états should be strongly condemned as they often fail in their attempt to restore good governance.
