YAOUNDE, March 15 (Xinhua) -- Cameroonian Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute on Wednesday met with visiting Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Kenji Okamura, discussing how to attain inclusive growth in the Central African nation.

Okamura committed to continuing to provide support to the country, as it faces economic challenges from the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

"Progress has been made but still there are a lot of challenges. The IMF stands ready to support Cameroon to work together to tackle these challenges towards our common goal of inclusive, resilient and diversified growth," Okamura told reporters after the meeting.

Both officials agreed on the need for structural reforms to be accelerated to strengthen medium-term external and fiscal sustainability.

Okamura visited Cameroon a week after the IMF announced it had approved a disbursement of 73 million U.S. dollars to help the Central African country's economic recovery.
