Cameroon: Banana exports on a decline due to Anglophone crisis

Banana exports from Cameroon, which have been on a downward spiral for the last ten months, have plummeted further in December 2018, APA said Tuesday.

The drop is estimated at about 2000 in the space of a month, in the total absence of the Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC), the second largest exporter of the country which is suffering from the socio-political crisis prevailing in the English-speaking regions of the North-West and South-West over the last two years.

According to statistics published Tuesday by the Cameroon Banana Association (ASSOBACAM), 15,605 tonnes were exported last month compared to 17,137 tonnes a month earlier.

The leader of the local market, Plantations de Haut Penja (PHP), a subsidiary of the French group Compagnie Fruitière de Marseille exported 90 percent of the produce during this period.
