BMI View: The DRC's mining sector will be supported by the country's vast high-grade mineral reservesand strong mining project pipeline. Despite this, low mineral prices, mineral policy uncertainty and unrestin the east will limit investment growth.

Latest Developments & Structural Trends

Ongoingmineral policy uncertainty could deter new investment from entering the sector and halt new projectsfrom coming online. In our view, a production growth slowdown would have considerable effects withinthe country.
