The aim of this article is to examine and measure the importance of the development of the creative industry in the fight against youth unemployment in Cameroon. Based on data both from an existing data base and a small survey we undertook, we have conducted prior a statistical analysis of the labor market to describe the importance of youth unemployment issue in Cameroon and highlighted the usefulness of development of creative industries as a potential solution to this problem. Thereafter, using the social accounting matrix that we constructed previously, we have made an analysis of the feasibility and impact of the development of creative activities on youth employment reduction. This analysis allowed us to highlight the fact that youth are the most affected by unemployment. It also showed the potential of the development of creative industry to solve this problem. These results led us to some practical policy recommendations for the development of the creative industry of Cameroon which, with its multidimensional aspect, could contribute more to absorb much of youth unemployment.
