Resources

It is estimated that the mineral wealth under our beautiful landscape is valued at over 4 trillion US dollars. Historically, much of the benefit of this precious bounty of mineral exports has been siphoned off for the profit of outside actors with the complicity of kleptocratic government administrators. We will institute a new level of transparency to contracts and statistics along with more rigorous export controls to ensure that our mineral wealth is properly captured, channeled, and reinvested in our country for the benefit of all Congolese.

We will also work more diligently with the international community of mineral processors and end-user stakeholders to ensure that supply chains are clear of ‘conflict mineralsʼ that might support militia groups, child and forced labor, unsafe conditions, and other ‘bad actorsʼ and special interest within the extractive industry in the DRC.
