EG joined the Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa (CEMAC) in 1985. It shares the Central African CFA currency with Cameroon, Chad, Congo, Gabon and the Central African Republic. the country is also a member of the BVMAC bourse, a sub-regional stock exchange. Integration has ensured financial stability, relative immunity to global shocks, and has contributed to the development of a robust financial service industry, which must now be expanded to meet the ever growing demands of the international and domestic businesses operating in EG.

Opportunities in the financial sector include:

  • Establishment of new institutions providing financial services
  • Improvement of inter-bank payment systems
  • Establishment of centers for training and management of human resources
