Only four months after its launch, the virtual gallery created by the Cameroonian Ministry of SMEs, the Social Economy and Handicrafts is already attracting interest among collectors of works of art from the United States.
Indeed, the majority of works of art exhibited on the virtual counter has already “been ordered by American consumers, who have seen these objects on the Internet,” reveals Minister Etoundi Ngoa. Recently, the fruits of these sales were even distributed to about 70 Cameroonian craftsmen, after a 5% deduction representing the tax to be paid to the Treasury.
The artistic exhibits on the virtual gallery of Cameroon are presented by artisans to the heads of craft centers located in the 10 regions of the country.
The burden then rests on the experts at those centers to select the deserving products and make them available to potential purchasers via the web.
For the time being, it has been learned, only the artisanal centers of Yaounde and Limbe have access to this gallery. The other structures of the same type will be connected progressively.
