About Central African Republic

The educational system is patterned on that of France, but changes designed by the government are being introduced gradually to adapt the curriculum to local needs. Adult illiteracy rates for the year 2000 are projected at 53.5% (males, 40.4%; females, 65.5%). As of 1999, public expenditure on education was estimated at 1.9% of GDP.

Specialized institutions include two agricultural colleges, a national college of the performing and plastic arts, and the University of Bangui, founded in 1969.

Agricultural output is dominated by subsistence crops. Agriculture (including forestry and fisheries) accounted for 54% of GDP in 2001, and it employed about 74% of the labor force. The FAO estimates that about 2,020,000 hectares (4,991,000 acres, or 3.2% of the total land area) are arable or under permanent crops, and 3,000,000 hectares (7,400,000 acres, or4.8% of total land area) are in permanent pasture. The CAR is nearly self-sufficient in food production and has potential as an exporter.
