Chad, N'Djamena
Overview

Chad, N'DjamenaN'Djamena is the capital city of Chad. It is also the largest city in the country. N'Djamena is a regional market for livestock, salt, dates, and grains. Meat, fish and cotton processing are the chief industries, and the city continues to serve as the centre of economic activity in Chad, despite the violent civil conflicts.

Chad is in Central Africa, south of Libya. The climate is tropical in the south and desert in the north.

The official languages are French and Arabic. English is rarely spoken in political or commercial spheres or in hotels and restaurants. The main religions are Islam and Christianity.

The economy of Chad ranks as one of the poorest in the world, with 80% of the population living below the poverty line. Years of civil war have scared away foreign investors; those who left Chad have only recently begun to regain confidence in the country's future.

Business is generally conducted in French, while Arabic is often spoken in the marketplace. Expatriate business dress is formal, however due to the heat, jackets are not often worn. For women modest dress is required.

The security risk for expatriates in Chad is high. Risks include petty crimes such as bag-snatching, pickpocketing and theft from vehicles, while burglary and vehicle theft increase during times of political instability. The north is vulnerable to infiltrations by Islamist extremists.

The currency of Chad is the CFA Franc BEAC (XAF).

Medical facilities are poor. Malaria is common. Diseases such as poliomyelitis and measles are present.

The population of N'Djamena is 1.6 Million (2016 est.), while the inflation rate is -1.3% (May 2017).
