Chad, Countries by TradeChad, Countries by Trade


Chad’s capital is the most happening city of this country and is slowly regaining its pre-war reputation as one of Central Africa’s liveliest cities.Apart from this wonderful city one would also find other interesting things to do once in this country and the infrastructure that has taken shape in this country is just mind blowing and worth enjoying. Bullet holes in buildings serve as a reminder of troubled times, but the atmosphere here is increasingly upbeat. There is also a lot of history behind this country to be discovered and enjoyed. There is a distinctive difference between the Arab section of town (very quiet at night) and the area where the southerners live (lively and full of bars).

Business and Economy

Chad's is a very small country and very less populated and the majoe dependence is on the natural resources hence that makes it a primarily agricultural economy that will continue to be boosted by major oilfield and pipeline projects that began in 2000. Major of the population is very dependent on the farming and stock raising for its livelihood. Cotton, cattle, and gum arabic provide the bulk of Chad's export earnings, but Chad will begin to export oil in 2005. They only face a problem of not having much of other resources that are very essential other than agriculture also and they only seem to lack it. Mining and other related activities like banking and financial services are absolutely not there in the country.

Major Cities

The major cities of this small country called Chad are Sarh, Abéché,Kélo,Koumra, Moundou,N'Djaména.
