Cameroon : The new Bills are Already Adopted

Minister of Public Health and Minister Of Economy Put Up Good Arguments.

Two bills have been adopted by Parliamentary Members at the Yaounde Conference Center during a plenary sitting on the 18 June 2021.

Bill No. 1094/PJL/AN that authorizing the President of the Republic to ratify the stepping Stone Agreement towards a Bilateral Economic Partnership Agreement between the Republic of Cameroon and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has been adopted. Before being adopted at the temporary location of the National Assembly, was defended by the Minister of Economy, Planning and Regional Development Alamine Ousmane Mey, under the watchful eyes of the Minister of External Relations and the Minister Delegate at the Presidency of the Republic in charge of Relations with Assemblies, on June 11, 2021. During the general debate, the members of the Foreign Affairs Committee who listened to the Minister while defending the Bill, pointed out that, it is expedient for the government of Cameroon to adopt such a bill. For such partnership with the United Kingdom will diversify the economy of the country. Since the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has greater economic potentials than Cameroon, such synergy will open doors to the country’s economy.

The second bill that was adopted is Bill No. 1096/PJL/AN to govern access to genetic resources, their derivatives, traditional knowledge associated genetic resources and their fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising from their utilization. This bill that falls within the framework of Cameroon’s implementation of the Nagoya Protocol which it acceded in 2016 seeks supporting the development of genetic resources and the traditional knowledge associated therewith in order to encourage their conservation and sustainable use. This bill was defended by the Minister of Public Health Manouda Malachi in the presence of the law makers.
