Republic of the Congo (English: The Republic of Congo; French: Ré publique du Congo), referred to as Congo (Brazzaville), is located in central and western Africa, with the equator running across the central part, Congo (DRC) and Angola in the east and south, Central Africa and Cameroon in the north, Gabon in the west and the Atlantic Ocean in the southwest. The coastline is more than 150 kilometers long and the total area is 342000 square kilometers.

At the end of the 13th and beginning of the 14th century, the Bantu people established the Kingdom of the Congo on the lower Congo River. On October 3, 1880, it was occupied and colonized by the French. On August 15, 1960, Congo officially became independent.

The two pillars of the Republic of Congo's economy are oil and timber. The Ocean Railway is the only railway in Congo and one of the earliest railways in Africa.



The two pillars of the Republic of Congo's economy are oil and timber. In the early 1980 s, due to large-scale oil exploitation, the economy developed rapidly, and the per capita GDP once reached 1200 US dollars, entering the ranks of middle-income countries in Africa. After 1985, after the impact of factors such as the decline in oil prices in the international market, the wave of multi-party democratization and the devaluation of non-government, the economy declined year after year and fell into serious difficulties. In 1997, the per capita foreign debt was 2400 US dollars. The 1997 civil war paralyzed the Congolese economy. Since the second half of 1999, international oil prices have risen sharply, oil revenues have increased, and the economic situation has gradually improved. The government has focused on restoring and developing energy, water conservancy, transportation, communications, and education, increased opening up, improved the investment environment, focused on rectifying economic order, punishing corruption, and increasing transparency in oil production and marketing. The fiscal revenue of the country has improved significantly, and the economy has continued to maintain recovery. Sexual growth, the average economic growth rate in the past five years is nearly 5%. The total budget for 2010 is 3005 billion.
