Doing Business in Republic of Congo
Business in the Republic of the Congo
The Republic of the Congo (ROC) is a challenging business environment. Weak infrastructure and public institutions, corruption, and rule of law concerns continue to dominate the business climate in the ROC. However, the ROC also offers tremendous opportunities to those companies and investors capable of taking advantage of them. The economic landscape is still dominated by the petroleum industry, but other energy sector, timber, mining, agriculture, ICT, and tourism opportunities exist. The ROC is eager for foreign investment. Below you will find resources to assist you in evaluating whether the ROC is the right choice for you.
