FDI: Entry and ownership rule

According to the UNCTAD report, until March 2010 the government of Cameroon liberalised foreign ownership by increasing foreign ownership ceilings in the banking sector and in residential property. 
 
The African Development Bank has pointed out in its report poor legal security of land ownership and difficult access to land ownership for foreigners as problems restricting the development of business environment.
