Commerce

There are three main weekly markets that operate at full potential in the following order, Lassin market, Djottin and Bamti. Nkor, the seat of administration, has no functional weekly market because the day for the market is the same as that of Oku and Nkambe markets and most traders prefer these markets to that in Nkor. It will be of benefit to the council if another day is allocated to this market. Foodstuffs, meat, pigs, goats and chicken, palm wine are supplied while second- hand dresses, shoes, various articles, beer, fish and petrol sold come from Kumbo.

There exist a few cattle markets that attract buyers from all over the province. Small daily markets are common in each village. Faulty measures are commonly used by “bayam-sellam” to the disadvantage of the villagers. Noni extends to major market points like Djottin, Bamti, Lassin and Nkor which are more or less accessible to neighbouring subdivisions from where traders come to buy or sell.

Tourism

Very little tourism activities take place in the municipality but however the bulk of tourists constitute traders and business persons who come weekly to attend the various village markets. They come mostly from Banso, Misaje, Ndu, and Nkambe, and spend the whole day. A few sleeping rooms are available in Bamti, Lassin and Nkor. The municipality has a rich potential for eco – tourism with vast river plains covered with corn fields, excellent rock climbing cliff, good biking road net work, horse riding down the hills to Nkor with a magnificent view, several palaces, shrines and caves are there to entertain tourists.

The roads, accommodation facilities, trained manpower, communication network for mobile phones and CRTV remain the major obstacles to its development. Other sites, which if developed by the council will become great tourisitc sites, are the caves found in the Mbinon forest and another one found in the remaining patch of forest along the Dom - Banten road. It is even said that there is a Tiger and its cub around this cave. The forest if also reserved will once again become homes of endemic bird specie like the Banaman Tauraco.
