The office of the Ambazonia Secretary of Trade (SoT) performs supervisory and regulatory functions to oversee the internal and external trade policies, agreements, and act as an advisory organ to the Ambazonia Government, local, and foreign businesses.
Currently, Ambazonia is Annex by the Republic of Cameroun, her businesses and infrastructures have been dismantled, while some have been absurd to the detriment of the colonizer. There is a great need to change the direction as soon as Ambazonia is free into the public-private partnership for prosperity and development. Ambazonia is blessed with Agricultural products, Forestry, Minerals, and natural features to generate energy. The above resources are in dire need of foreign investors to partner with the Ambazonia government or indigenous firms. Most products from ambazonia are mainly in their primary form, it will need investments in the transformation to finished products. There is also some negligence in the transportation sector in which the colonizer willingly forsake not to develop this sector such as the road networks, modern Railway and the Limbe deep seaport which could be the biggest in the West and Central Africa. The transportation system needs finances to gain their full potential, and it is capable of being the hub between the west and central Africa states.
