GDP in DR Congo
DR Congo - GDPA recent report by the Central Bank suggests that the economy is expected to have decelerated to a six-year low of 4.3% growth in 2016, just slightly above FocusEconomics’ forecast of 4.2%. The print reflects lower output in the mineral, agriculture and hydrocarbon sectors. While the country grapples with subdued commodity prices, the ongoing political crisis shows no sign of abating. The nomination of an opposition politician as prime minister has failed to defuse the growing feud. A prominent opposition leader has vowed to return from self-imposed exile if the current president fails to leave office when his term ends on 19 December, which could fuel greater political polarization.
