Invest in Republic of Congo

The Republic of Congo, also known as Congo-Brazzaville is one of the richest geological regions in the world. Located in the heart of the African continent, Republic of Congo is bordered by Gabon to the west, Cameroon to the northwest and Democratic Republic of Congo to the south.

At the dawn of the opening of the continental free trade zone, our country located in the heart of Africa must be a strategic hub for production, processing and distribution.
It is in this perspective that the government of the Republic of Congo has decided to trust the ARISE group to ensure the development of three special economic zones in our country.

Geographical advantage

From equatorial rainforests spanning millions of Hectares to vast reserves of mineral resources, including petroleum, iron, copper, etc., the Republic of Congo offers a wide range of opportunities for investment.

Abundance of natural resources

Congo is the 4th largest oil producer in the Gulf of Guinea and more than 70% of the land is occupied by forests. The country has also been ranked 7th amongst African crude oil producers. Petroleum industry takes a major share of the total exports. Vast untapped opportunities are presented by sectors like forestry, mining, manufacturing, etc., which can become the future of sustainable industrialization in Congo.

High rate of urbanization

Congo has a consistently expanding population with a high percentage of young people. With more than 70% of the population living in urban areas, the demand for several consumer goods is estimated to increase exponentially in the upcoming areas. A massive youth population living in urban areas also provides highly skilled and medium skilled labor to meet industry demands.

Business environment

Congo is one of the most resource-rich countries in the world, with untapped deposits of diamonds, gold, copper, and more. The government recently has taken great steps forward in improving the conditions for businesses to thrive and reforming the economy to make investment more appealing for companies moving into the country.
