Chad’s economy is mainly agronomic. Most of the local population are engaged in subsistence farming and animal herding, producing food majorly for their own consumption. Chad’s economy depends on 3 supplies: cotton production, cattle breeding, and on a special African tree called gum for its export incomes. However, for the past 30 years, Chad’s economy has been slowed down by some political issues but Chad’s expansion has also caught up high energy and transportation costs due in part to its geographic location. The oil industry offers the opportunity to the country to diversify the economy and project in a further growth.
