Legal timber trade with EU can be big business for small companies in Cameroon
For small and medium enterprises in Cameroon’s forest sector, trade with the vast EU market is a prized target. But small companies often face big challenges. Growing market demands for assurances that timber and timber products are legal mean such companies must adapt.
New partnerships between the EU and Cameroon are therefore helping ensure that trade can not only tackle illegal logging but also drive sustainable development. For small businesses, legality can be the key that unlocks the EU market and enables them to modernise and grow.
