About Congo Republic

The Republic of the Congo, which is located on the coast of Atlantic Ocean in West Africa, is bordered by Gabon to the west, Cameroon and Central African Republic to the north, Zaire to the east, Atlantic Ocean and Democratic Republic of the Congo to the southwest and Angola to the south.

In the present location of the Republic of the Congo, the Kingdom of Congo used to rule. In the 16th century, the Kingdom of Congo reached its brightest period in its history, but following this century, the kingdom began to collapse rapidly due to internal disturbances and wars. The Kingdom of Congo, which was destroyed by the arrival and settlement of Europeans and continued to exist under the rule of other powerful countries such as France, declared its independence on August 15, 1960.

The country, which is also known as People's Republic of the Congo, consists of 12 different regions. The capital and most developed city of the Republic of the Congo is Brazzaville. Ouesso, Ouvando and Pointe-Noire are among the other important cities of the country in terms of both economy and tourism.

Although the official language of the country is French, other local languages and dialects such as Kikongo, Lingala and Monocutuba are also spoken. Its population, which consists of 4 different ethnic groups, Buteke, Bakonga, M'Bachive and Sangha, is approximately 3 million. Approximately 40% of the country's population, which mostly consists of French Europeans, live in cities instead of rural areas. The currency used in the country is CFA Franc.

Agriculture and handicrafts play a leading role in the industrial sector of the Republic of the Congo which is not dependent on only one sector in terms of economy. In addition, oil is one of the main export products in the country, which has a developed economy thanks to its oil reservoirs. Since it is also very rich in terms of precious metals, foreign investments made to the country are also quite high. The most exported products in the country are iron ore, lead, tin, zinc and copper.

Although the country, whose economy is based on agriculture, is rich in terms of arable lands, primitive agricultural methods are still used in many regions. The main agricultural products include oil palm, cassava, peanut, sugar cane, rubber, sweet potato, banana, tobacco, cocoa and coffee. Niari Valley, which is one of the most arable lands, is also important for the tourism sector and attracts a significant number of visitors every year.

The axis of equator runs through the northern part of Congo; this causes the country-wide equatorial climate to prevail in the country.

While daytime temperatures in the country are generally 24 degrees; it varies between 16-21 degrees at nighttime.
