The IPA’s overall objective in organizing the second edition of CIF is mainly to:

– Provide participants with a framework for discussions on business opportunities, consultation and business relationship bringing together industrial promoters and investors around a catalogue of projects and themes carefully selected and prepared in advance;
– Provide opportunities for project promoters and technical and financial partners to establish joint ventures, partnerships or funding arrangements for projects of common interest in the priority sectors;
– Promote products, services, innovations, expertise, technology and projects.

This second edition of CIF will be held on the 09th and 10th of November 2017 at the Party Hall in Bonanjo – Douala.
