GDP in DR Congo
DR Congo - GDPThe Central Bank revised its 2017 GDP forecast up from its last economic assessment in June, noting improved growth prospects. The upward revision reflected a recovery in primary sector output, a trend that is likely to have picked up pace in the third quarter due to higher prices for key commodities such as copper, and higher output of commodities up until July. Nevertheless, conditions remain extremely challenging. Rampant inflation continues to erode household earnings, and prices for Congolese commodities remain far below the highs observed in prior years. Compounding this issue, political uncertainty remains pervasive. The recent call by the opposition to step up protests against the government to hold already delayed elections could result in bloodshed and violence.
