About Democratic Republic of the Congo

The Democratic Republic of the Congo, the largest country in Francophone Africa, has vast natural resources. It has the potential to become one of the richest countries on the African continent and a driver of African growth if it can overcome its political instability. The persistent presence of armed groups, and ongoing insecurity continues to destabilize eastern DRC.
