Cameroon (official name: the Republic of Cameroon) is a country located in the central part of Africa and shares its borders with Nigeria, Chad, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and the Gulf of Guinea. Before the First World War, it was a colony of Germany and after the end of the war, it was split between the French and British. In 1960 French Cameroun became independent as the Republic of Cameroun and merged with the southern part of British Cameroons in 1961. At that time, it was called the Federal Republic of Cameroon. The name was changed to the United Republic of Cameroon in 1972, and to its present name, the Republic of Cameroon or République du Cameroun. Although people of Cameroon speak many dialects and languages, the official languages of the country are English and French.

Compared to many other countries of Africa, Cameroon is relatively prosperous country and has better roads and railways, developing agricultural activities and extensive petroleum industry related facilities.
