The Government of Cameroon, in its permanent quest for social stability and the balanced develop- ment of the National Triangle, created in 2004, the Ministry of Employment and Vocational Training (MINEFOP). Following its reorganization Presidential Decree N0 2012/644 on 28 December 2012, it received as main tasks: the ela- boration and implementation of the Government's policy on employment, training, guidance and pro- fessional integration. The head of the Department, having perceived the high expectations of the Head of State and the entire Government, made human capital formation its leitmotif. Thus, MINE- FOP has set itself the strategic objective of contribu- ting to increasing the supply of decent jobs through the development and diversification of the supply and quality of vocational training in the national ter- ritory. It has to be done in such a way to allow real regulation of the outgoing flows from primary, secondary or higher education cycles.
Since 2007, the Rural Craft and Household Sections (SAR / SM) have gradually been set up as Trades Training, three Vocational Training
Centres of excellence were built and equipped with the support of the Republic of South Korea in Douala, Limbe and Sangmélima. They are already operational. The Institute for Trainers Training and Program Development is being built with the Korea International Cooperation Agency, KOICA.
On September 14, 2016, the Head of Department, accompanied by administrative and traditional authorities of the Moungo Division, proceeded to the laying of the foundation stone of the Vocational Training Centre of Trades of Nkongsamba. Two Sectorial Training Centres will be built in Douala in Logistics /Transport, and Edéa in Agro-Industry. In the same vein, with support by the French Development Agency, four non-agricultural trades Training Centres in rural areas will be built, within the framework of the C2D program in Bandjoun, Maroua, Ebebda and Ndop. Many partnership agreements are being negotiated with national and international partners for other centres.
Besides, MINEFOP, with the contribution of the Ministries and Public Administrations involved, the National Youth Council of Cameroon, youth associations, workers and employers’ organiza- tions, the International Labour Office (ILO), deve- loped the National Action Plan for Youth Employment (PANEJ) 2016-2020. The main objective being to gradually reduce the scale of the current employment crisis by 2020, by crea- ting thousands of decent jobs for young people through the assurance of a proper distribution of the fruits of growth, matching training and employment, improving the employment informa- tion system, promotion and development of youth entrepreneurship and the promotion of gover- nance in labour market for this social strata. PANEJ 2016-2020 therefore appears as the reference and convergence base for the policy and action of the Government and its partners in promoting youth employment n
