Research and Markets: Rapid Investment into Democratic Republic of Congo expected as soon as Stable Future is Guaranteed.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Practical Guide to the Democratic Republic of Congo to their offering

The Transitional National Government in Kinshasa offers the first real opportunity to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to break with its disastrous recent past and to establish a legitimate authority . Its immediate challenges are to ensure a final resolution of the conflict; provide an effective humanitarian response; establish an accountable state; establish a framework for tackling the country's huge poverty problems; and to hold free and fair elections.

Such is the potential of the Congo that trade and investment is bound to flow as soon as there is an indication of a stable future. Business leaders as well as governments are watching eagerly. Humanitarian needs are constant and expanding.

This Guide has been produced for those who are preparing to enter the DRC's choppy waters - businesses, aid agencies - and for the international and regional diplomats who recognise the central strategic importance of the DRC for Africa. Many companies are already engaged there - South African, Belgian, US and others. More will follow if the transitional government builds the basis for elections and stable rule.

The Guide consists of four parts - an brief overview for those who quickly need to understand the nature of the country and its politics and economy; a practical guide to doing business or operating in a difficult environment; an assessment of the economy; an overview of the politics of the country; and a series of current interviews with key DRC political and business leaders.

The key to the sections are lists of important business, military and political leaders active since the late '90s in the turbulent public life of the DRC. The sections are chronologically organised, so that important events can also be fixed or searched by date.
