President’s vision for congo’s industrial development

The 2021-2026 Social project of the Republic of Congo is focused on the industrialization of the country.
The implementation of this ambitious plan – to structurally transform our economy – is based on the development of four existing special economic zones (SEZs), including: Pointe-Noire, Brazzaville, Ollombo-Oyo and Ouesso.
In the same vein, the Government of the Republic chose the development of SEZs as the third pillar of the National Development Plan (NDP) 2022-2026.
Consequently, to prioritize and involve the local labor in the construction of the Pointe-Noire Special Economic Zone, 350 young people were called to receive training in Construction, thus obtaining the necessary skills required to fully contribute to the realization of our nation’s plan.

His Excellency Monsieur Denis SASSOU N’GUESSO
