There are opportunities large and small in the DRC.  The DRC’s enormous mining wealth attracts top mining companies from around the world.  The boom in demand for electric car batteries and electronics has multiplied the demand for cobalt and coltan. Energy is another sector with tremendous potential for hydroelectricity and renewable solar and biomass energy.  Telecommunications is a largely privatized and still growing industry.  Agriculture is an explored sector as the DRC has large tracts of underexploited land.  The need for roads and buildings means numerous contracting opportunities.  The need for transport creates an enormous market for vehicles, boats, and engines.
