The launch of a Technological Agro-industrial Park, TAIP, in Cameroon, Experts meet to analyse setup

Experts in technological development and agro-industry have met in Yaounde again to strategize on the setting up of a Technological Agro-industrial Park, TAIP, in Cameroon. The Secretary General in the Ministry of Mines, Industry and Technological Development, Edouard Ebah Abada on August 12, 2016 told experts that Cameroon stands well to export research and development as well as processed agro-industrial products if a technological industrial park was put in place. He said, «We need to use the technological capacity and resources of companies whether large or medium enterprises, research institutes and universities to promote food processing.”

The National Coordinator of the Project to Design a Master Plan for TAIP in the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation, Chief Mbi Oruh Michael, explained that a technopole is a community of industries where Cameroon is going to process and transform its raw materials on the site. He said the country’s innovative products will be assembled at the pool for a better market share. It will serve as a hub for research and innovation and an incubator for promoting business and creating entrepreneurship. “We are putting in tools for industrialization,” he stated. 

Experts at the meeting focused on classifying policies, guidelines, laws and regulations that facilitate research centres and incubators in Cameroon. They also proposed workable strategies for the marketing of research results and intellectual property right protection for such centres.
