Abstract: Cameroon and China have signed several agreements in the domain of economic and technical cooperation. China has long provided aid to Cameroon, with such assistance on the rise, and unlike other donors this aid is unconditional with regard to state internal affairs. However, the huge influx of cheap Chinese manufactured goods poses a serious threat to fragile export manufacturers in Cameroon and even more so, to small- and medium-sized enterprises who are still producing for local markets only. There is also need for more transparency in Cameroon-China aid relationships, not only to facilitate harmonization with other donor programmes, but to allow for public scrutiny.
