Summary: This Selected Issues Paper for the Republic of Congo discusses economic development and policies. Domestic prices of refined petroleum products are administratively set by the authorities below import parity. Non-oil revenue in 2007 has remained about 20 percent of non-oil GDP, compared with overall fuel subsidies of about 8.3 percent of non-oil GDP. The fuel pricing policy and subsidy scheme have been established by the authorities to protect low-income households from rising energy prices.
