The World President of the International Multiracial Shared Cultural Organization (IMSCO) was received in audience by the Prime Minister on Tuesday the 23rd of April 2013, at the star building

On behalf of the Head of State, the Prime Minister, Head of Government, His Excellency Philemon Yang granted audience to the World President of IMSCO on Tuesday the 23rd of April 2013 at the star building, in the person of Mr. Frank Weston, following the signing of a Convention between the Non-Governmental Organisation and Cameroon.  

Accompanied by four other members of the group, Mr. Weston told their press after the audience that the plan was to open a branch of the organization in Cameroon entailing the facilitating of the return of the economic gains of African Americans to the continent, and particularly to Cameroon. 

In very precise terms, the New York-based Organization is envisaging substantial investments by Black Americans in various domains including ICTs, energy, education, infrastructure and health, an economic power estimated at more than a billion US dollars. 

In return, his organization will import natural agricultral products from Cameroon to the United States of America.

With the enthusiasm to match words with action, Mr.  Alfred MENO, the Regional Director of IMSCO affirmed that their organization, a specialized organ of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations that promotes development, fights against poverty and unemployment, will soon carry out a field evaluation of the respectability of the accords signed with the Government.

According to the mechanism which their Organization promotes, Mr. Meno explained that African-Americans acting in solidarity are braced to come to the aid of their fellow descendants of the black race, whom they describe as wallowing in poverty in the midst of plenty. 

Actually, IMSCO and the Government of Cameroon on the 18th of April 2013 signed a Convention by which the Organization has been authorized to operate in Cameroon. So far, the NGO which has carried out activities in other countries has contributed to the construction of social housing in Central Africa, namely in the Congo.
