General Historical Background

With the coming of Joseph Kabila to power on January 26th, 2001 a new era was started at political, economic and social levels thanks to which the momentum of national reconstruction was boosted. Having as his prime goal the rehabilitation of peace and reunification of the national territory, President Joseph Kabila favoured diplomatic dialogues to put the country on the right track.

Being 'home to a vast potential of natural resources and mineral wealth2', the DR Congo is attempting an economic revival through adapting its legal framework to modern day investments. The democratic transition process (2001-2006) has known a happy outcome with the free, democratic and transparent elections allowing democratically elected leaders (President of the Republic, Members of Parliament and Provincial Councillors, Senators, Province Governors, etc.) to run the country. Therefore, after the 2006 elections the international community was facing a freshly installed government led by H.E. Joseph Kabila promising to uphold the principles of democracy and promoting foreign investment. As a result of the ensuing political stability, political risks (wars, political instability), economic risks (raiding, inappropriate economic measures) and social risks (strikes, riots and troubles) are considerably reduced. Furthermore, during the 2006 legislative period some prosperous initiatives were undertaken. The new constitution said to be of the third Republic was promulgated by the Head of State on February 18th, 2006 along with several investment related Codes.

Thanks to these provisions, the new constitution restates the commitment of the Congolese State to achieve its development. The right of individual or collective ownership and that of private enterprise for the national as well as foreigners is secured. The settler sets up an economic and social council whose task is to provide consultative opinion to the President of the Republic, the Parliament and the Government, given the complexity of issues relating to social and economic development the country is facing.

Two supporting institutions to democracy process have been provided for in the constitution in view to strengthening progression towards a constitutional State and guarantee democracy. They are especially the National Independent Election Commission (CENI) in charge of permanent organization of elections and the High Council of Audio-visual and Communication (CSAC) tasked with ensuring freedom and protection of the press as well as all the mass communication means as per the law.

Since then, the country reached a political stability never achieved before, despite some episodic trouble which sometimes threatens peace in some locations in the East of the country, but which the national forces seconded by the international community forces brought under control. Stability and good governing are therefrom visible in the country and improvement of the business environment becomes therefore the main focus.

The DR Congo has managed to provide itself with laws and regulations intended to improve the scope of operations in all sectors so as to attract more private investments. We can clearly consider that efforts made to improve the business environment have been successful at this level since funds are really coming. This is a very significant advance.
