Economie.

Bonjour
Pour l'économie dans notre Pays il y a un problème très sérieux. Cette année nous avons 8 milliards USD et la population est 78 millions d'habitats.Sur cette somme ils y a ceux qui touchent beaucoup et les autres touchent le prime insignifiant.

Ceux qui touchent beaucoup ils ont encore le logement,le transport, communication,soins médicaux et autres et ceux qui sont mal payés non pas tout ces avantages.L'injustice totale.

Nous avons beaucoup de minerais, ceux les endroits ou on exploitent et autres ou on a pas encore commencé à exploiter mais là ou on n'exploitent ou non n'exploité ne profitent pas à la population congolaise, le sol congolais est très ferture mais aux villages là ou on peut cultivé il y a l'insécurité. Et dans peut de milieu qu'on peut forcer pour faire la culture malgré l’insécurité il y a manque de tracteur. Ils y a ceux qui ont le tracteur mais pour l’allouer ce chair et le carburant aussi est très coutant ici chez nous.

Au Congo il y a les endroits ou on jettent les maïs et sa pouce très bien mais à cause de la gestion on importent la farine de maïs à l'étranger.Nous avons le lac Tanganyika à l'Est le plus poissonneux mais le poissons que nous consommons à l'Est viennent d’Ouganda, Tanzanie...

A Bukavu la ville est peuplé alors que les villages sont presque inhabités a cause de cette insécurité.
La population croupisse dans le misère malgré tout les biens du Congo, la gestion nous fait souffrir.

Rien ne va en RDC sur l'économie.

Good morning
Our country’s economy is facing a serious problem. This year we have 8 bn USD for a population of 78 million. Salaries vary from this amount, some with much and others with barely something.

Injustice is felt because those with good salaries have access to housing, transport, communication, medical care, while those with poor salaries do not have access to such advantages. Our mining industry is rich but its exploitation is of no benefit to the congolese population. The Congolese soil is very fertile, but in villages, one can’t farm due to insecurity. In the few areas where people attempt to farm, there is lack of tractors. Those with tractors rent it very expensive due to the high cost of fuel.

In Congo, some areas favour the cultivation of maize which is directed exported due to poor management. Lake Tanganyika on the East produces fish but the fish we eat at the East comes from Uganda, Tanzania…

At Bukavu, there is population influx meanwhile villages are empty due to insecurity. The population suffers from misery despite all the riches in congo. Management is the cause of our suffering.

The economy of Congo is sick.

la mauvaise gérance

Bonjour

Merci d'avoir pris la peine de nous faire part de cet aspect économique dont souffre la RDC, c'est un problème qui touche un peu partout en Afrique.
Parler ainsi est un pas en avant qui permettra de résoudre le dit problème.

A votre avis qu'est ce qu'on peut faire pour remédier la situation.

Portez vous bien et beaucoup de courage dans vos poursuites.

Ghnadi un jour a dit, tout finira bien par s'arranger, et si tout ne s'arrange pas, ce que ce n'est pas encore la fin. Femme, garde espoir!!!!

Ghandi once said it will all get well at the end, and if it doesn't get well, then it is not yet the end.

Stay Strong

Dear Kusinza ,

I am so sorry for the situation in your country. Since the world crisis started, it seems that life is not easy anywhere in the world, and this is especially true for the most vulnerable - women and children. Please stay strong. Forums like this can provide you with helpful tools in raising your voice and concerns.

In solidarity,
Marija

Dear Kusinza, Just this

Dear Kusinza,
Just this morning I read something very similar to what you wrote about the situation in Congo in a big German newspaper. The reason why I'm telling you this is that thank God, the situation in Congo gets more and more on the agenda elsewhere and I can only hope that eventually the decision-makers do something about it. Congo must be an amazing country, if it wasn't facing the problems of bad governance and horrible crimes.
Please keep on sharing your thoughts with us. We need to hear all about.
My thoughts are with you!
Katharina

L'economie de RDC est tres triste et comme tu l'a dit, c'est bizarre car le pays a d'abondance de minerais. Mais ce cas dont tu parles ne se survienne pas seulement en RDC, c'est un probleme mondial. Comme Messa t'as demande, a votre avis qu'est ce qu'on peut faire pour remédier la situation?
