The Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo) has a narrow 50-km coastal strip running along the Atlantic Ocean, just north of the mouth of the Congo River. The country covers 2,345,409 sq.kms, more than four times the size of France. With a GDP of US$41,62 billion and an estimated population close to 78 million, DR Congo is the fourth most populous country in Africa and the most populous French-speaking country (source: World Bank, 2017).

Given its natural and mining resources, the economic potential of the Democratic Republic of Congo is considerable. The country occupies a central and strategic place in the region, bordered to the west by the Republic of Congo, to the north by the Central African Republic and South Sudan, to the east by Uganda, the Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania (separated from Congo by Lake Tanganyika) and to the south by Angola.

French companies are present in various fields: road and airport infrastructures, hydrocarbons, retail, pharmacy, transport, or the securing of data.

In order to meet the needs of its customers on the Congolese market, Simon Associés has developed privileged relations with economic and legal partners locally.
