DR Congo - Current Account

Incoming data suggests that growth has lost steam this year, after a robust turnout in 2018. While mining production recovered slightly in April–May, after slowing in the first quarter, lower global prices dragged on the sector. An acceleration in output of base metals in the first two months of Q2 was countered by a fall in prices following the escalation of the U.S.–China trade war in early May. This, coupled with a contraction in oil production in both April and May, likely weighed on merchandise export earnings. On 18 June, Moody’s downgraded the government’s credit rating from B3 to Caa1 with a stable outlook, citing the lack of a proper institutional framework to deal with economic or political shocks.
