About the DRC
D.R. Congo is the second largest country in Africa after Algeria. It extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the eastern shelf and corresponds to most of the Congo River basin. The north of the country is one of the largest areas of equatorial forest in the world, the east of the country borders the Great East African rift, area of mountains, hills, Great Lakes but also volcanoes.
The economy is mainly agricultural (70% of assets) or export oriented. Minerals are great resources. The economy has been severely hit by corruption and mismanagement since 1977. This explains the high rate of smuggling, illegal export and clandestine mining. Government revenues and exports have fallen sharply over the past 40 years. The economy was ravaged by the war (1997-2005: 5 million deaths). China’s largest trading partner today is China (import, export, credit).
A mining country
The Democratic Republic of the Congo would hold 10% of the world’s known gold reserves. Exploited in open mines as near Mongbwalu, the ore is the object of all the traffics. Randgold Resources, a South African company, has just launched the construction of one of the largest gold mines in Africa in the same region.
