122LES ATOUTS ECONOMIQUES DU CAMEROUNpolitical reforms, in reply to the appointment of a Special envoy of the Commonwealth’s Secretary General in Cameroon. Considered as a frame- work reference for political dialogue between the two parties, the committee is responsible for the monitoring of reforms in four domains: electoral process, justice (including the prisons), decentra- lization and human rights.Cameroon has therefore undertaken of reforming and modernizing its political system. There is a notable improvement in consideration of the ongoing process. As example, we have:• The Law on creation of the National observa- tory of elections,• The restoration of the National Commission of Human Rights and Freedoms (CNDHL),• The creation of the National Commission for Fight against Corruption (CONAC) by the President of the Republic in March 2006,• The Law on organization of the Chamber of Accounts of the Supreme Court,• The adoption by National Assembly in June 2005 of a criminal procedure code, which came into force in 2007. The Commonwealth and International Bar took part in the elaboration of the legal draft,• The penitentiary reform,• The creation of an independent organ in charge of the organization and management of elections: Elections Cameroon (ELECAM). We should men- tion that the Commonwealth is committed to build the human and institutional capacities of the said organ as much as possible if need be.The Commonwealth’s pattern for technical cooperation is mainly based on Capacity Building. Mechanisms for the implementation of technical support are, among others: granting of scholarships, organization of seminars/works- hops for all professional categories and various fields; this includes both the member states and regional level. In the last decade, more than 800 Cameroonians benefited from it.At social level, the Cameroon-Commonwealth cooperation is built on three major pillars: the promotion of gender equality, promotion of youth and promotion of public health and education for all. As for equality of gender and promotion of youth, it is a partnership based on a common interest for the improvement of women condition and promotion of her emancipation besides that of the youths such that the two social strata would actually take part in the process of governance and development of Cameroon.CAMEROON AND THE ORGANIZATION OF THE ISLAMIC CONFERENCECameroon joined the OCI on the 5th Session ofCameroon keeps alive an ongoing relationship with the International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF)
