Economic & Trade Mission in Congo Brazzaville

Are you looking for economic opportunities in a booming market? We invite you, along withWalloon Export and Foreign Investment Agency (AWEX) and Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT), to an exclusive multisector mission to Pointe Noire, Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo, from 4 to 11 October 2019.

Despite low levels of economic development to date, the Republic of the Congo has very large mining resources. Anxious to bring about an economic recovery, the country is counting on a quick and sustainable growth period. Its economic landscape is changing as we speak!

The ROC has shown a willingness to diversify away from its primary industries into other sectors that show a promising future. This multi-sector Belgian mission to Congo-Brazzaville is the first for a number of years. The aim is to introduce you to the economic advantages of this country by showing you its most attractive industries: petrol, mines, quarries and wood.

This fact-finding mission could be an important move for your business, leading to a profitable and sustainable cooperation. You can take advantage of opportunities to make unique contacts within the Congolese government thanks to tailor-made support, and also profit from the experience of other Belgian entrepreneurs who have already set up in the country.

To take part in the Congo-Brazzaville economic and trade mission, sign up before 15 September.
