Geographic location: The Republic of Chad is Africa’s fifth-largest country by geographical area. The country is landlocked, located at the intersection of North and Central Africa. It is bordered by Libya, Sudan, the Central African Republic, Cameroon, Nigeria, and Niger.
Population: With a population of 16 million people who speak both Arabic and French, there is a huge potential for human capital growth in Chad.
Economy: Chad’s economy is driven by its oil mining and agricultural sectors, with crude oil supplanting the traditional cotton industry as the nation’s main source of export revenue. Alongside these two economic drivers, Chad is also reliant on the export of its abundant natural resources including gold, natron, uranium, limestone, sand, gravel, kaolin, and salt. Now, the country’s increasing telecommunications coverage and optimal climate for agriculture make Chad a land of opportunities for investors.
