DRC Investment Summit 2022: The Awakening Of An African Giant
Date: 27-29 June 2022
DRC Invest is pleased to announce the inaugural DRC Investment Summit, taking place from 27 - 29 June 2022 in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo.
The largest Francophone country in Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), endowed with vast natural resources, has nearly 80 million inhabitants, fewer than 40% of whom live in urban areas. With 80 million hectares of arable land and over 1,100 listed minerals and precious metals, the DRC has the potential to become one of the richest economies on the continent and a driver of African growth.
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) witnessed the first peaceful transfer of power, and during the inauguration speech, His Excellency President Felix Tshisekedi highlighted his administration’s main priority; reviving the country’s economy.
Policy makers are sending strong signals to global investors and bilateral partners; “business can be conducted seamlessly and effectively within our borders”. When investors perceive an environment to be hurdle free, it is easy for them to plan long-term investments, becoming development partners who supplement the government’s efforts.

21st International Economic Forum on Africa: Africa in the Emerging Global Economic Order
Date: 10 June 2022, 09:00-13:30 (CET)
The fast and challenging transformations of the global economy are reshaping the conditions for Africa’s global emergence in the 21st Century. The socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the reshaping of global value chains, insufficient development finance and fast rising food and energy prices call for innovative policies and international partnerships. As the continent was just starting to recover from the crisis and heal the scars from the pandemic, it faces again a deteriorating global economic outlook. That context also challenges African economies’ efforts to reduce their dependence on raw material export, advance productive transformation and increase investment and domestic resource mobilisation. The emerging global disorder is thus shaking the policy discussions on the transformation of African economies and how best to create opportunities for their youth.
