RELATIONSHIP WITH THE INTERNATIONAL LABOUR OFFICE
Cameroon keeps close partnership with the International Labour Office (ILO). The main objec- tives of this cooperation are: exercise of funda- mental human rights at work, employment promo- tion, vocational training, fight against poverty, capacity building of the social partners (through organizations of employers and workers). Many programs are conducted jointly with a view to improving working conditions and protecting social peace. These are, the Project "Jobs for Africa", the Training program of the social dia- logue in Africa (PRODIAF) and in a near future, the International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC).
It should be noted here that Cameroon joined the fight against child labour by ratifying Conventions No. 138 and No. 182 of the International Labour Organization (ILO)

CONSULAR CHAMBERS
There are two main Consular Chambers in Cameroon:
CHAMBER OF AGRICULTURE, LIVESTOCK AND FORESTS OF CAMEROON
Established on 12 December 1978, the Chamber is a public financially independent entity and a legal personality administered by a President and a Secretary General appointed by decree. The primary function of the chamber is to represent agricultural, pastoral and forestry inte- rests with public authorities. The Chamber of Agriculture, Livestock and Forests of Cameroon (CAEFC) is under the joint supervision of the Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Livestock. It is under the management control of the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Livestock.
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, INDUSTRY, MINES AND HANDICRAFTS OF CAMEROON
Created in 1921, the CCIMA, like the Consular Assemblies in French-speaking countries, is a public advisory body representing the interests of commerce, industry, handicrafts, mining and ser- vice delivery. Its main purpose is to act as a chan- nel of communication between, on the one hand, the private business communities and, on the other hand, the public authorities, with regard to consul- tancy and legal representation in the many areas, and the most important of which is the economy.
