Who We Are
The Democratic Republic of Congo’s central bank has cut the country’s 2016 GDP growth estimate.The central bank now anticipates the economy to grow by only 2.5 per cent down from a reversal of 4.3 per cent. The lowering of the forecast has been attributed to low commodity prices. This latest downgrade is the fourth this year.
In August, the country once again slashed its economic growth forecast citing the impact of low commodity prices.
In 2015, the country vast on mineral resources recorded a 6.9 percent growth. However, the output of copper, cobalt and gold have all fallen this year.
Commodity prices have plummeted and foreign investors are further likely to be deterred by the country’s election stalemate.
DRC is Africa’s top copper producer and relies on its mining industry for about 95 percent of its exports earnings.
Nestled in the heart of central Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is in the midst of a major transformation. Known for its abundance of natural resources that are estimated to number above $24trn, the country has recently posted significant economic progress and has diversified to expand on its agricultural and human capital potential.
In the past three years, the nation has exhibited double-digit growth and attracted the attention of international agencies and businesses, keen on taking advantage of a country making strong economic gains. In the span of a few short years, it has transformed from a war-ravaged place into one of great hope, supported by economic growth and fuelled by an abundance of natural resources and vast human capital potential. In the last decade, the country of approximately 80 million has been home to some of the most impressive economic prosperity in the entire African continent. Today it stands as a beacon of success and a model to which other Central African nations can aspire.
Most news headlines from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have one thing in common—their focus on conflict, particularly in the eastern part of the country. True, conflict is not new in the DRC, which has seen outbreaks in one form or another over the past three decades.
Of late, however, worries are mounting over presidential elections slated for November this year. President Joseph Kabila, in power since 2001, is bound by term limits to step down after having won elections in 2006 and 2011. His one-time ally now turned rival, former governor Moïse Katumbi, has declared his intention to run for the presidency, a decision that has not gone down well with some of President Kabila’s allies who would like to see him run for a third term.
