The President of the Republic His Excellency Paul BIYA and Stéphane FOUKS, a communication consultant with a wide range of experience, have been discussing ways and means to promote financial and industrial development in Cameroon. The discussions took place at Unity Palace on Tuesday 29 September during an audience granted by the Head of State to the French business mogul.

Stéphane FOUKS, who is Vice-President of Havas, came to Unity Palace shortly after mid-day for the audience with President Paul BIYA that lasted over one hour. Speaking to the press immediately afterwards, he declared that communication for development was the focus of the discussions he had with the President of the Republic.

Stéphane FOUKS was optimistic about the economic prospects of Cameroon, which he said needed to be explained to financial and industrial investors who do not yet know about the many economic opportunities existing in Cameroon, which has a wide variety of natural and mineral resources.

In this light, the erudite communicator said plans were underway to organise an investor conference in Cameroon next year which will bring the investors and financial community to Cameroon for a first-hand view of the potentials available. The motivation of the international business community was the best way to accelerate the economic development of Cameroon, and Stéphane FOUKS was disposed to accompany the country in this endeavour.
