COMPARISON BETWEEN GREAT BRITAIN AND REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO: ECONOMY, MAIN PROBLEMS…

Great Britain is a large island in the north of the Celtic Sea with an area of 209,331 km². In 2011 the island had a population of about 61 million people and its capital is London.

The British climate is varied but in general there are warm summers and cold winters. In addition, the British economy is the fifth-largest national one in the world and its financial services industry is particularly important.

On the other hand, the Republic of the Congo is located in Central Africa, with an area of 342,000 km2, inhabited by 4,662,446 people; the capital of the  Republic of the Congo is Brazzaville, and the country tropical climate is characterized by heavy precipitation,  high temperatures and humidity. In the north, the dry season extends from November to March and the rainy season from April to October, whereas in the South happens the opposite. On both sides of the Equator, however, local climates exist with two dry and two wet seasons. The economy of the Republic of the Congo is a mixture of subsistence hunting and agriculture, an industrial sector based largely on petroleum extraction and support services.

One of the biggest problems Britain is facing is immigration; one out of three people believes that tension between immigrants and people born in the UK is the major cause of division, while well over half regards it as one of the top three causes. Over the past two decades, both immigration and emigration have increased to historically high levels in Great Britain.

However, Republic of the Congo’s major problem is the lack of basic resources such as water, rich minerals etc., that causes poverty.

As it is shown in this statement Britain is a rich developed country while the Republic of the Congo is a poor one whose inhabitants haven’t anything to eat nor potable water to drink.

I think poverty in the Republic of the Congo could be resolved if everyone donated to any foundation such as ‘Raise hope for Congo’. Likewise, another way to reduce or finish the poverty would be if the United States or another rich country gave money to the Republic of the Congo.
