On April 12, 2018, some media claimed that the ministry of commerce was the one habilitated to deliver fish imports authorization. To belie the information Luc Magloire Mbarga Atangana, head of that ministerial department published a statement the same day.
In that statement, the minister informed that only the ministry of fisheries and animal husbandry was habilitated to deliver such license.
“It has always been like that”, the official said. He further added that according to the law n°2015/018 of December 21, 2015, on business operation in Cameroon, an operator can be a retailer and a wholesaler at the same time.
