Balance of Payments and International FDI Position in the DRC: FY2019/20

The DRC’s merchandise export earnings have been growing steadily since 2017. The growth in export earnings has improved the DRC’s balance of payments and resulted in increased gross official reserves. The balance of payments recovered from a deficit to a surplus in 2017 supported by the capital and financial account deficit (net inflows) and inward foreign direct investment (FDI) flows; despite the persistent outward FDI outflows. These capital flows have improved DRC’s balance of payments and the country’s net international FDI position. The DRC’s balance of payments surplus is projected to moderate to a lower level, which is projected to support steady growth in gross official reserves in the medium-term.
