Secure your company’s future in the DRC by shaking hands with the same people who will be signing your exploration and operations licenses.
But doing business in the DRC is not simply about getting your foot in the door. Investors and potential operators in the DRC need to have solid contacts in government and a deep understanding of the socio-political and economic climate of this post-conflict nation as part of their recipe for success.
Would you too like to learn the rules of engagement?
Good. Understanding is needed about the evolving legislation including the investment code, the mining code, decentralization, taxes and import/export duties, as well as the banking laws.
Challenging infrastructure makes day-to-day operations a huge consideration.
Do you know everything you will need to know about power supply and cost of power as well as access to the interior of the country by road? What about port networks and regional corridors? And after all of that you will also need to understand how to obtain reliable access to internet, phone networks, and local banking systems.
It does sound overwhelming, but there is a tried and true solution: iPAD DRC - Mining & Infrastructure Conference & Exhibition! 25-27 October 2010, Grand Hotel, Kinshasa, DRC.
The 6th edition of Infrastructure Partnerships for African Development (iPAD) DRC will unite the leaders of the nation’s economy and create the only unique forum for you to solidify your contacts and ask your questions to those few people who really know the answers.
Over the years iPAD DRC has come to be heralded as a national institution and a Congolese tradition privileged to have the full support of the government. Now you too can mingle with the Congolese mining elite while gaining practical insight for doing business in the DRC. iPAD DRC will provide you with:
- A facilitated environment for direct access to government mining officials – H.E. Martin Kabwelulu Labilo, confirmed iPAD participant, has pledged to reduce the time it takes for the issuance of licenses for companies like your own.
- An opportunity to receive updates on the latest infrastructure developments – Prepare your business operations based on the realities on-the-ground and accurately forecast for power supply, logistics and regulations governing the industry.
