French term or phrase: (membres de) l'observatoire du label
Hi all,

there doesn't seem to be an English translation for this. It's part of a campaign in the Cameroon to promote local goods and discourage smuggling and counterfeiting. The complete sentence is:

"Cela se fera avec l'apport des membres de l'observatoire du label "made in Cameroon", mis sur pied par les chefs d'entreprise à l'issue de forum."

There is a similar campaign in SA ("Proudly South African") but I haven't managed to find an equivalent phrase for this. I know I can bypass this all together, but what can I say - I'm just curious now!

If anyone knows/has any ideas, don't hesitate!

TIA
