Summary of PIMA report

(Published in April 2022)


Despite some recovery in the 2000s, the levels of public investment in the DRC remain well below the average for comparator countries. Investment by general government, financed to a large part by external resources, has fluctuated around 4 percent of GDP since 2003, remaining almost 50 percent lower than the averages for Sub-Saharan African countries and for low-income countries. This enabled the rebuilding of part of the stock of public capital (46 percent of GDP in 2019), but the stock of capital per capita continues to be among the lowest in the world (≈ US$200 in 2019). In addition, there are investments carried out by public corporations in the energy and mining sectors (≈ 2 percentage points of GDP a year in recent years), as well as by the public-private partnerships (PPPs) in the transport sector (stock of at least 4 percent of GDP).
