CCCGB IN KATANGA, DRC

​The British Government through its Department of International Trade (DIT) took part in the DRC Mining Week that was held in Lubumbashi, Katanga from 13 to 15 June 2018. They invited UK businesses to work with CCCGB during this conference with the aim to present British expertise and to explore the investment opportunities offered by the DRC. The delegation of CCCGB was composed of Cedric Longange (Chair), Patrick Sabwe (Capital Programmes), William Kapuku (Strategic Engagement & Security) and Adrien Mizuma (Public Relations). The delegation was accompanied by DIT’s representative Craig Sillars (Mining & Infrastructure Specialist) along with the executives of several British companies such as AngloAmerican, Rangold, Malabar Group, Perenco, Vodacom, Rwashi Mining, Boss Mining, Aggreko and Levin Resources. Dominique Mukoma, from the British Embassy in the DRC was of great assistance during this event. In one of the interviews, he explained: “There are not enough British businesses here in the DRC. Likewise, in the UK the British companies are not aware of the many opportunities offered by the DRC. Hence we are working jointly with CCCGB to build up a bridge between the DRC and the UK”. 
CCCGB established a good presence through several stands, the aim being to facilitate investment in many sectors outlined by Mr Kapuku: “The DRC is still a raw country. If you go through the entire territory, you will realise the need to build the country up. The DRC is the engine of the world where you find 50% of our planet’s natural resources. We have different sectors such as agriculture, fishery, livestock farming, energy, etc. Energy is the key to development, yet in our country only 4% of the population has access to energy. We also have our airspace where thousands of planes are flying over our heads. In fact, we can even live only from the usage of our airspace”. The pivotal role of CCCGB was best summarised by Mr Longange: “Our vision is focused on two axes: not only be a federative voice for the Congolese businesses based in the UK, but most importantly attract British investors here in the DRC so that the local population benefit from our British companies’ expertise”. This incisive trip to the DRC’s second largest city has been successful as many key contacts have been made and important contracts concluded.
