MINPMEESA > SME > Sub-contracting

The Cameroon Subcontracting and Partnership Stockexchange (BSTP) are centres of technical information, promotion and linking between the donors, the suppliers and the subcontractors, which aim at using the more optimal (the most complete, logical and efficient) productive capacity of the affiliated industries. Indeed, stock exchanges appear not only as meeting points and as instruments of regulation between the supply and demand of industrial subcontracting works, but also as instruments of assistance for both partners, and particularly for small and medium-sized subcontractors or suppliers.

The Cameroon Subcontracting and Partnership Stockexchange (BSTP CMR) is an EIG created on May 8, 2013 by the Cameroonian government. Its activities are carried out by a technical team placed under the authority of a joint committee of 14 members from the public sector, the private sector and with observer members (EU, UNIDO, ADB, API, AP-SME, BC-SME …). It is a joint public-private committee for a convergence of concerted actions.

The EIG BSTP CMR is under the supervision of the Ministry of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, Social Economy and Handicrafts.
