Democratic Republic of Congo's (DRC) infrastructure investment potential

The Democratic Republic of Congo has immense potential but remains a risky investment location. Main hurdles include pervasive poverty, political turmoil, security issues, vast land area and inadequate transport infrastructure.

The DRC is one of the most infrastructurally challenged countries in the world. Ground transportation has always been difficult and the country’s vast geography, low population density, extensive forests, and criss-crossing rivers further complicate the development of infrastructure networks.

On a positive note, the country has thousands of kilometres of navigable waterways and water transport has traditionally been the dominant means of moving around approximately two-thirds of the country.
