Mining industry dominates the DRC’s formal economy and is expanding as Minerals account for the vast majority of the DRC’s exports and represent the single largest source of foreign direct investment (FDI). Copper, cobalt, gold, coltan, tin, and zinc are the most important metals mined and produced in the DRC State-owned mining company GECAMINES, the largest actor in the copper and cobalt sectors. But GECAMINES is now a state partner in public-private mining partnerships with foreign companies.
The diamond sector currently accounts for about 10% of the DRC’s export revenue. Production by the DRC parastatal, MIBA, has significantly declined from past decades; MIBA ceased operations in 2009-2010 due to technical and financial difficulties. While its current production is minimal, MIBA is seeking financing to resume operations. Nearly all current diamond production in the DRC is artisanal and takes place in the two Kasai provinces.
