The Republic of Congo and the People's Republic of China established diplomatic relations on February 22, 1964.

This bilateral cooperation is governed by several agreements, among which the Agreement for Economic and Technical Cooperation, signed on October 2, 1964 in Beijing, the Agreement establishing the Great Joint Commission for Cooperation, signed on May 27, 1982 in Beijing and the strategic partnership concluded on June 19, 2006 in Brazzaville.

These include:

  • Pointe-Noire / Brazzaville road:

    537 km long, the national road N° 1, one of the great challenges of the 2nd seven-year term of the President of the Republic, is the backbone of the national economy and the hub of the country's transport network. Fruit of Congo-China strategic partnership, the RN1 was built in two phases, namely the Pointe-Noire/Dolisie section (160 km) and the Dolisie/Brazzaville phase (375km).
