Central African Republic - International cooperation



On 26 September 1960, the Central African Republic was admitted to UN membership; CAR is a member of ECA and all the nonregional specialized agencies except IMO. In 1959, together with Chad, the Congo, and Gabon, it formed the Equatorial Customs Union (Union Douanière Equatoriale— UDE), a customs union in which merchandise, property, and capital circulated freely. The UDEAC, a subregional common market including the UDE nations and Cameroon, became operative in January 1966, superseding UDE. As of the late 1990s, the country is also a member of the African Development Bank, G-77, and African Union, and is a signatory to the Lomé Convention and the Law of the Sea treaty, as well as a member of the WTO.
