Democratic Republic of Congo Economic Outlook

  • The growth rate of the Congolese economy fell from 6.9% in 2015 to 2.5% in 2016, but could rebound to 4.0% in 2017 and 5.2% in 2018, given the expected rise in prices of the country’s raw materials.
  • The DRC made some progress in terms of human development in 2016, but that progress remains fragile.
  • Significant efforts will be required to operationalise the country’s strategic frameworks for entrepreneurship and industrialisation.
