“DRC has experienced a ‘real recovery’ in the production of mining resources in the space of a few years, the annual production of the DRC has gone from 10 thousand tons to nearly 1 million.”

Louis Watum, President
Chamber of Mines, DRC

I would like to congratulate the whole team for a very successful edition of the DRC Mining Week in Lubumbashi. We are very grateful for being invited to attend this important event. We look forward continuing our fruitful collaboration with you.


Mr. Huang Xia United Nations Special Envoy
Great Lakes Region

The DRC Mining Week was really great with an amazing variety of participants. I participated in several editions but this one was really special, we felt the desire of the delegates to get involved differently in the mining sector of the DRC and for Glencore, it is a must to take part in this event.


Marie-Chantal Kaninda Vice President Corporate Affairs
Glencore, DRC

Standard Bank is convinced that the Congolese economy will show a positive growth rate and the bank is willing to support this growth.
