Central African Republic (CAR)
Central African Republic (CAR) is a landlocked country in Central Africa. It shares a border with Chad, Sudan, South Sudan, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of the Congo. CAR has a long history of civil unrest and instability that has resulted in the displacement of nearly 25% of its population. Following the 2016 elections, the country has for the first time in its history a democratically elected president and parliament. This is seen as the first step towards national reconstruction and growth of its key sectors, which include agriculture and mining.
