2006 - RDC - Country Portfolio Performance Review Report


Since the resumption of Bank Group operations in 2001, the execution of the Bank’s new portfolio in the Democratic Republic of Congo has taken place in a national context that is relatively unstable on the political and socio-economic fronts. The institutional constraints of the political transition (2003-2006) affected the performance of the portfolio. Since the end of 2006, the country’s political environment has undergone major changes with the election of the President of the Republic and the appointment of a new government. Prospects for the execution and improvement of the Bank’s portfolio seem better with more stable political and economic visibility in the short-term, and the government’s commitment to a 2007-2011 program based on a good governance contract.
