COUNTRY AT A GLANCE
Upon independence in 1960, the former French region of Middle Congo became the Republic of the Congo. The country is one of Africa's largest petroleum producers, but with declining production it will need new offshore oil finds to sustain its oil earnings over the long term.
Brazzaville is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Congo but Pointe-Noire is the essential center of the oil industry of the Republic of Congo, one of the main oil producers in Central Africa. Congolese oil has been largely exploited by the French company Elf Aquitaine since its discovery around 1980.
French remains the official language but Lingala , Monokutuba and many local languages and dialects are spoken.
The Republic of Congo has a free economy. Franc CFA is the used currency. According to the 2014 census of the World Bank, the population is around 4,662,446. Less than 5% of the population is expatriate.
