Expressing his satisfaction on the achievements of the National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism (NCPBM), Matt Decourcey said they talked on measures to ensure and promote the respect for bilingualism in Cameroon.

"Our wonderful exchange dwelled on the important work being done by the Commission towards the respect of bilingualism and multiculturalism principles as well as provisions of government services relating to language. In Canada, we work hard on a daily basis to safeguard the strengthening of these characters. We share a long history of friendship and partnership with Cameroon and will always exchange experiences and advise the Commission where need be," he stated.

The Canadian envoy said collaborating with civil society organisations, partners and the population is a definite means to supporting bilingualism and multiculturalism.
