Cameroon

Football fans await the thrill, but what does the competition offer to businesses, football clubs and players, organizers, and the Cameroonian government?

Cameroon has already invested almost US$4 billion in infrastructure. Two new stadia, roads, and modern infrastructure have been built to connect the six stadia that the event will be held. The other four stadia have also been renovated.

The investment has offered short-term employment opportunities to local engineers and labourers, especially the youth, in a country where 40 per cent of the population lives below the poverty line.
