The event will see the participation of the Dangote Group, crowned with the title of “special partner“, we learn officially. “We are pleased to confirm officially the participation of Dangote Cement Cameroon SA in the first edition of Nicamex (…) To Dangote Cement, it is essential, as a Nigerian company leader in Cameroon, to be present at the exhibition” wrote Paavo Wiro, the Country Manager of the Dangote group in Cameroon, in a recent official correspondence to the organizers.
Nicamex 2016 will consist of an exhibition of B to B meetings between Nigerian and Cameroonian traders, panel discussions and cultural events.

With over 1,400 km of borders with Cameroon, Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa, is a strategic trade partner for Cameroon. Cameroonian industrial, like Paul Kammogne Fokam, founder of Afriland First Bank Group, would also see the Cameroonian government to sign Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with Nigeria, rather than the Union European.
