The Province of Kongo Central has many sites with hydroelectric potential, the most important of which is the Inga site, hosting the Grand Inga Project. It is also the first province in the DRC where oil exploitation is effective since nearly five decades. Provided with three seaports, two in the city of Boma and one in the city of Matadi, a fourth one projected in deep-water in the city of Banana, the Kongo Central province has an intense port activity and is the entry and exit doorway for merchandise by sea for the western part in the DRC.
Due to business exchanges between Kinshasa and Matadi, the operation of the Kinshasa-Matadi railway makes this province a connecting center between the central and north-western parts of the country to the Atlantic Ocean. Our presence in the Kongo Central is a major asset in the litigation management of our clients located in Kinshasa and elsewhere in the country. The takeover of their business from Kinshasa to the Kongo Central is an element of efficiency and effectiveness in managing the interests of clients who have not additional costs to incur.
