Experts from the US are expected in Cameroon in the days ahead to share experiences with those of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) and Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) when Cameroon hosts the first-ever ECCAS, ECOWAS and Gulf of Guinea Commission summit on maritime safety and security in the Gulf of Guinea slated for June 24-25, 2013.
The US Ambassador to Cameroon, Robert P. Jackson, made the declaration to the press on June 17, 2013 after holding talks with the Minister of External Relations, Prof. Pierre Moukoko Mbonjo. Two experts, P. Jackson said, would be in Cameroon for the summit whereby the host country has a great story to tell of efforts in combating piracy for the emulation of other countries of the sub-regions. Discussions between the two officials also focused on the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) and the Libreville summit that ended on Friday June 14, 2013. “We wish that the situation in CAR will continue to stabilise”, Robert P. Jackson noted.

Meantime, the future of cooperation between Germany and Cameroon is good as the Ambassador of Germany to Cameroon, Klaus-Ludwig Keferstein confirmed on Monday saying long-standing relations between both countries in many fields will continue to expand. Speaking to the press at the end of an audience with Prof. Pierre Moukoko Mbonjo, Klaus-Ludwig disclosed his country’s intention to invite more German firms to Cameroon in the next two years for possible investment ventures. He cited the development of the fertilizer plant near Limbe in the South West Region by a German firm in collaboration with Cameroon’s National Hydrocarbons Corporation.
