Our History


There is no doubt that the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been ushering in a new era on the political front in recent years, thanks to which there is now hope that the economic fabric will take off in order to gradually improve the social situation of the population.

Since its independence on 30 June 1960, the DR Congo has been confronted with recurrent political crises, one of the fundamental causes of which was the contestation of the legitimacy of the institutions and their leaders.

This contestation took on particular prominence with the wars that tore the country apart from 1996 to 2003.

With a view to finding appropriate solutions to this chronic crisis, the Constitution of 18 February 2006 was promulgated after the global and inclusive agreement signed in Pretoria on 17 December 2002.

After the promulgation of the above-mentioned Constitution, the DRC went through 3 electoral cycles in 2006, 2011 and 2018.

The 2018 elections have a particularity in that they resulted in the alternation at the top of the State with the victory of His Excellency Mr. Felix Antoine TSHISEKEDI TSHILOMBO, elected President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo at the end of the democratic and transparent elections of 30 December 2018.

This victory was consecrated by the peaceful and civilized handover of power on 24 January 2019 between outgoing President Joseph KABILA and incoming President Felix Antoine TSHISEKEDI TSHILOMBO.

This democratic change is a first in the Central African sub-region. This is a strong signal for the establishment of the rule of law in the DR Congo, a guarantee for the attraction of international investment and the encouragement of domestic investment.
