Cameroon Telecommunications, CAMTEL has drilled regional and local authorities on the privileges of setting up of a local digital Economy.

Officials of CAMTEL used the one day workshop on fostering Decentralisation to drill participants under the theme: "Digital Development: Vector for the acceleration of the local development process in Cameroon." 

Holding in Yaounde, the workshop that falls squarely on the 2020-2030 National Development strategy, seeks to entrill the regional and local authorities on the advantages of setting up a local digital Economy, the training of personnel in this regard and construction of a database of the soon to be created local civil-service.

To fill this gap the General Manager of CAMTEL, Judith Yah Sunday Epse Achidi brought participants for an exchange that will foster the drive to improving local development.

"The CAMTEL Decentralisation day has given us a clearer picture of the Decentralisation process in Cameroon and the related challenges in terms of digital development. It has also enabled us to highlight the contribution of digital technology to the promotion of local development and to understand the progress made by Regional and local authorities in developing the digital economy and e-governance, as well as the constraints thereto" CAMTEL GM told participants.

She added that the rise of  digital technology and the promotion of local development in Cameroon as envisaged in the National Development strategy 2020-2030 will achieved with the contribution of the various actors that we are, Judith Yah Sunday continued.
