Cameroonian banana sector to receive EU funds

As Cameroon is set to meet the challenge of doubling its annual banana output by 2013, the EU will grant the country €48 million for the sector. In this regard, the head of the External Trade Department in Cameroon’s Ministry of Trade, Emmanuel Mbarga, stressed that this support is expected to find its way major producing firms that aim to increase production.
According to an article by Bilaterals, the Central African country produced  230,000 tonnes of bananas in 2010, amount which increased the following year thanks to an improvement of the farming methods, reaching 250,000 tonnes.   The current plans are therefore to raise output to 500,000 tonnes, mainly by establishing more plantations.
