Economy

For the first quarter of 20th century, Cameroon was one of the most prosperous countries in Africa. However, the drop in commodity prices (mainly petroleum, cocoa, coffee, and cotton) led to a decade long recession.
Cameroon has rich oil reserves and agricultural lands, and is one of the best commodity economies in Africa.
