Profor

Research programme on the domestic markets of Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

ATIBT conducted a study for the World Bank that seeks to identify the obstacles hindering the development of a formal domestic market. The study was conducted with the participation of the ONFI and CIFOR, who respectively researched industrial groups and small and medium-sized companies. The final report contains recommendations that aim to restore fair market conditions between industrial players and craftsmen. In addition, recommendations on domestic market growth drivers, especially the use of lesser known tropical species for construction, have been produced and will be issued by the World Bank to the Congo Basin countries.
