The Global Competitiveness Report published by the World Economic Forum carries little reassuring news for Cameroon for the period 2014/2015. Cameroon got an average of 3.66 on a scale from 1 to 7 and puts the country as one of the most badly managed in the world. This is an average but according to the World Economic Forum its an excellent backward trend.
The World Economic Forum based in Geneva, Switzerland establishes its ranking by scrutinizing the pillars of competitiveness such as the institutional environment, infrastructure, macroeconomic environment, health and primary education, development financial markets, innovation and technology readiness level.
Cameroon is in Category 1 (the smallest) classified among the countries with a basic level of development. In Africa, Cameroon ranks 14th behind the leading trio of Mauritius, South Africa and Rwanda. These are followed by Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, Seychelles, Zambia, Gabon, Lesotho, Ghana, Senegal, Ivory Coast and Cameroon.
