Economic & Commercial Section

Overview

The Economic and Commercial Section is responsible for interacting with the Congolese government in matters pertaining to its economic relationship with the United States and for gathering information and reporting about the DRC’s economic situation to officials in Washington and elsewhere.  This encompasses a wide variety of areas from commercial advocacy, international business, natural resources, transportation, banking, finance, agriculture, labor, infrastructure, and of course communicating with the Ministry Officials of the DRC. The Section also serves as a conduit for American businesses interested in trade and investment in the DRC.  The Section further works with the Congolese government and businesses to aid and advance the local economy by presenting the various available U.S. government programs for developing nations.
