Infosheet: Central African Republic at 60

On the occasion of the Africa 2020 year, the ASCL has created Infosheets about the countries that became independent in 1960. Of the seventeen colonies gaining independence in that year, the Central African Republic (CAR) was the twelfth one: on August 13. The CAR had been a French colony from 1903 onwards (as Oubangui Chari), from 1910 onwards as part of French Equatorial Africa.
