DR Congo - GDP

The Congolese economy slowed to a seven-year low in 2016, dragged down by a decline in output as commodity prices slumped. Moreover, growing political uncertainty in the country could undermine any meaningful recovery. Opposition leaders and the government reached an agreement in late December to hold elections in 2017 after President Joseph Kabila failed to step down when his mandate ended on 19 December. While the agreement defused massive protests in the country, it remains to be seen whether signatories will abide by the deal. The ongoing political crisis has thrown the country into disarray and ongoing civil strife has vast implications for the economy.
