The Japanese International Cooperation Agency known as JICA has promised to ameliorate Cameroon’s Small and Medium Sized Entreprises through the Kaizen Project. To this effects experts of the Japanese Kaizen Project met on the 6th of October 2015 with stakeholders at the Ministry of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises to discuss their action plan. During the three hours discussion, the Japanese Senior Consultant Kazurhiro Okamoto presented three main power points that constitute the Japanese action plan to be implemented within two years.
Remarkable among them, was the decision to train more than 40 Cameroonian business consultants within two years. The other points raised were based on contributing ideas of developing business projects and creating strategies to follow up business enterprises.
