The economic growth of a Nation depends directly on the degree of investment achieved (Law No. 004/2002 of 21 February 2002 on the Investment Code, Explanatory Memorandum, P.1). The rate of investment has become one of the indicators that investors use to ensure a country's attractiveness.

The registration of investment projects by their approval to the Investment Code and by approval of the lists of goods to be imported under the privileged regime of the Mining Code.

The Investment Code allows investment projects of nationals and foreigners carried out in the DRC in the sectors not expressly reserved to the State or not excluded by the negative list, to benefit from a number of customs, tax advantages and parafiscal, as well as certain general guarantees (Article 1 of the Investment Code).

Under the terms of Article 225 of the Mining Code, all investors in the mining sector must have the list comprising the number and value of movable property, Equipment, vehicles, mineral substances and others which fall within the scope of the preferential customs and tax regime provided for (Article 225 of the Mining Code, Law No. 007/2002 of 11 July 2002 on the Mining Code) approved by the Ministers of Mines and Finance, before starting their work.

 Graph 1 : Changes in the volume of investment from 2010 to 2016(In USD)

Changes in the volume of investments have been steadily increasing from 2010 to 2012, declining slightly in 2013 and a decrescendo movement in 2014. Between 2015 and 2016, the volume of investment has increased compared to 2014. In Overall, this development is significantly influenced by the flow of investment from the mining sector. On the basis of the aforementioned graph, we can see slow growth in investments of the Investment Code sector against a sharp increase in investment in the mining sector. Mining investments are made in the DRC by more than 80% by subsidiaries or branches of foreign companies.
