Production volume of goods and strategic products

Changes in the volume of production of major mining, manufacturing and agricultural products

I. Mining and oil sectors

The reform of this sector by opening up to private partners has made it possible for DRC to attract several subsidiaries of the large multinationals of the world. The success story indicates the presence in the country of companies such as: TENKE FUNGURUME MINING (KORWEZI COPPER COMPANY (KINROSS-EGMF), KIBALI GOLD, MUTANDA MINING, ASHANTI GOLDFIELD KILO, TWANGIZA MINING, etc.

This massive presence has fueled the country's growing mining production over the years, which explains the dramatic improvement in the DRC's macroeconomic indicators. Below, the evolution of the production of some main products of the sector.

 II. Cement and agricultural sector

In the context of inclusive growth advocated by the Government, the DRC expects from the private sector investment of creation, diversification and / or extension in other sectors of national life, notably in agriculture, fisheries, livestock, tourism, food industry, construction materials industry, packaging industry, metallurgical industry, etc.

There are several reasons for decision-making to invest in the above-mentioned sectors: availability of market share, availability of labor, an increasingly prosperous and secure business climate, Freedom of enterprise recognized by all, the presence of several raw materials including limestones, quartz or silica, wood, oil, etc.

To illustrate the availability of market share in the cement sector, the national supply is on average around 450,000 tons / year, while demand is estimated at 5,000,000 tons per year. The resulting difference is covered by imports from China, Turkey, Egypt, etc. Yet, the ideal would be to value many limestone sites scattered across the country.

The downturn in recent years in cement production is explained by the cessation of the activities of Cimenterie Nationale, of Cimenterie du Katanga, etc.

The operationality of PPC BARNET and the Kongo-Central cement plant since 2016 will contribute significantly to the growth of domestic cement production in the DRC. It is also worth mentioning the presence of another CICO cement plant still in the Province of Kongo-Central, which is still in the investment phase.

In spite of the above, the market remains open for new investors in this sector both in the West and in other sites including the East, South and North of the country.

In addition, the ongoing installation of the Maluku Pilot Special Economic Zone and the effectiveness of the agro-industrial park project, including that of the BUKANGA LONZO Pilot Zone in Bandundu Province, are all factors that guarantee the possibility of success of the private sector in the DRC 

The evolution of the volume of production of cement and some agricultural products is as follows:
