Chinese people in the Republic of Congo

There is a large community of Chinese migrants residing in the Republic of Congo.

Several Chinese engineering firms work in Congo as contractors for major infrastructure projects and employ Chinese construction workers as a part of the overall workforce. At a Beijing Construction Engineering Group construction site in March 2012 in Brazzaville, 6 Chinese workers were killed and dozens injured when a blast occurred after a fire at a munitions depot devastated the adjacent neighborhood.[1]

Overseas Chinese

Overseas Chinese (traditional Chinese: 海外華人/海外中國人; simplified Chinese: 海外华人/海外中国人; pinyin: Hǎiwài Huárén/Hǎiwài Zhōngguórén) are people of ethnic Chinese birth or descent who reside outside the territories of Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Although a vast majority are Han Chinese, the group represents virtually all ethnic groups in China.
