Economy

Extraversion is the term that defines how African countries since colonial times have been historically dependent on outside sources and forces for support. My government will focus on regaining control of domestic markets and address this serious and long-standing extraversion of our economy and thereby reduce its vulnerability to external influence and disruption. This is not to say that we will not seek advice from any corner. However, we will take care not to compromise our national integrity or the good of or people for the benefit of the few.

We will, to improve transparency in the management of public resources and secure investors, review and modernize relevant codes and streamline processes. This includes areas such as public procurement, labor organization, and insurance markets, as well as tax policy, customs, oil, mining and forestry.

Given the chance through a revitalized economy, our industrious population will cease to be the problem and become the solution. It will create, it will produce, it will consume, it will export products and resources, and it will import what the world has to offer in fair trade. My administration will seek to put in place policies to ensure a growing and inclusive economy so that all Congolese will have the opportunity to share in it. This would be the crowning achievement of our agenda and what the world might come to see as the “Congolese Miracle.”

We will promote and support the concept of entrepreneurship in the DRC to encourage small business. Small farmers are the backbone of our agriculture system and must be supported with ways to acquire better tools and storage facilities such as encouraging farmer cooperatives. Improved roadways will allow them to get their produce to market.
