The Republic of Congo is benefitting from a Chinese grant of about $60 million to build the country’s new parliament located in the capital Brazzaville.

Work started on the new edifice in May 2017 and it’s being constructed by the Chinese Jiangsu Provincial Construction Ltd. for a scheduled period of 40 months.

Opposition groups have kicked against the move saying China’s interest is in the country’s oil and timber the country has.
