The Cameroonian Government, through the Ministry of SMEs, Social Economy and Handicrafts, officially launched on 20 October 2016 a virtual gallery. This initiative aims to capitalize on the opportunities offered by the Internet to promote the Cameroonian crafts worldwide.
According to Minister Laurent Serge Etoundi Ngoa, the products to be exhibited in this digital gallery will first be presented in craft centers in 10 regions of the country.
Experts are installed in the centers to select the deserving products and make them available to prospective purchasers via the web.
First, are we learned, only the handicraft centers of Yaounde and Limbe can access this gallery. The other structures of the same type will be connected gradually.
To believe the officials of the Ministry of SMEs, Social Economy and Handicrafts, the virtual gallery should enable artisans to live decently from the fruits of their labor, insofar as their products can be marketed via the gallery at prices far more lucrative.
