The history of the Republic of the Congo has been marked by French colonization, a transition to independence, socialism, and a transition to a market-oriented economy in the 1990s.
The earliest inhabitants were the Bambuti people. The Bambuti were linked to Pygmy tribes. The main Bantu tribe living in the region were the Kongo, also known as the Bakongo. They established a kingdom close to the Congo River, which encompassed all or parts of present-day Angola, the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Gabon.
Congo is fast becoming a model of development in Central Africa characterized by a dynamic and growing economy, political stability, a commitment to democracy and respect for the rule of law. One of Africa’s top oil producers, Congo’s expansive natural and human resources and friendly business climate are rapidly transforming the country into one of Central Africa’s most profitable business and investment destinations. Our government is dedicated to promoting the country’s growth through improvements in infrastructure, investments in agriculture and education and by nurturing its diplomatic relationships around the world which are central to its success.
