The project aims to pursue reforms in the ICT sector,  improve internet access and digital skills, promote the development of digital applications and services, improve digital inclusion, improve the scope and use of digital services, and encourage employment and entrepreneurship. 

According to Minette Libom Li Likeng, "PATNuC embodies the digital transformation approach targeting a highly strategic sector for Cameroon while offering to reform the regulatory framework of the information and communication technology (ICT) sector."

The Digital Transformation Acceleration Project should contribute to the realization of the National Development Strategy SND30 and "Vision 2035", which aim to make Cameroon "an emerging country, democratic and united in its diversity," thanks to the structural transformation of the economy and inclusive development.
