Democratic Republic of Congo risk profile

Report summary

The business environment in DRC is very poor, hindered by poverty, corruption, bureaucracy and poor security. Risks are highest in the east where there is armed conflict, a humanitarian crisis and environmental sensitivity. Remoteness and lack of infrastructure add to challenges. The oil producing region in the west is much more benign. DRC has a fair fiscal system and fiscal stability but a mooted new petroleum code is creating uncertainty, especially as government intentions are opaque.
