Cameroonian authorities have once more saluted the efforts made by the Economic Commission for Africa, ECA, to accompany the country and her neighbours in the Central African sub-region in crafting development policies for the structural transformation of their economies. One of the issues that underpinned discussions between the Deputy Executive Secretary and Cameroonian authorities was the result of a recent project funded to the tune of 212,518 dollars by ECA to enable the National Institute of Statistics (NIS) acquire android tablets with the application known as CAPI, to facilitate the collection of data on prices of agricultural products in the country’s 10 regions. To execute the project, NIS also benefited from the partnership of Cameroon’s National Advanced School of Engineering and the collaboration of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Husbandry and the Sub-Regional Institute of Statistics and Applied Economics. NIS is now about to extend the use of the same mobile technology to other sectors of the Cameroonian economy.
