Chad - Country Commercial Guide
Last published date:


Since the collapse of global oil prices in 2014, much of Chad’s construction is multilateral bank financed. Many government-funded projects remain unfinished. There is some private construction. Waste management and water management services are embryonic. Prices of concrete and other building materials are high, and most construction materials must be imported from neighboring countries. Projects financed by multilateral banks include a bridge over the Logone river connecting Chad and Cameroon, an electricity interconnection between Chad and Cameroon, a fiberoptic connection between Chad and Niger, solar power plants, and roads.

Leading Sub-Sectors

Leading sub-sectors in construction include: architectural design and engineering for large projects; concrete mixers and trucks; construction management and contracting services; cranes, bulldozers, and other heavy machinery; electrical services; landscaping design services; pre-fabricated home construction; road and bridge engineering and construction; road paving equipment; scaffolding; waste and water treatment.


Priority sectors for the government are transportation, housing, public facilities, tourism, hospitals, schools, and other large infrastructure projects. Other projected projects include improving the road network, housing, renovating government facilities, and urban initiatives in N’Djamena. The Chadian government publishes construction tenders in local and occasionally international media. Multilateral lending institutions issue their own requests for proposals (RFPs).
