Economic Investment

ECI’s objective is to increase the investment from the American corporate sector in eastern Congo through partnerships, education and outreach.

To fuel the development of a vibrant economy in eastern Congo, ECI will spearhead corporate investment, public-private partnerships and capacity-building for production of high-value agricultural products. This focus will help the Congolese capitalize on DRC’s rich potential and help develop a wider economic base that puts Congolese to work.

Investment in creating income-generating opportunities for the Congolese people is the fastest and most sustainable way to lift citizens out of the cycle of poverty and offers tremendous potential for increasing stability in the region and opens doors to improved health, education and a more just society.
