L A BEAUTECACHEE AU CONGO

L'environnement economique (du sud kivu) de la RDC est trés developpé ,les entreprises qui jadis faisaient la fierté du pays ont fermés ,néanmoins ,on rancontre quelques activités industrielles qui connaissent un faible développement ,une entreprise de production de la biere et de boisson gazeuse ,production de médicament, de production de matelat,des savonneries artisanales,des tôles,despains,...
A côté de ses structures,operent les ONG internationales et locales qui offrent certains empois à la population dans la ville de bukavu ;le secteur formel.
cette situation se consolidait suite à la désarticulation et des desintegration du systeme bancaire à la faiblesse de la production et l' absence de la politique générale d'emplois. ceci laisse penser que la province du sud kivu est pauvre .
l' exode rural est dû à l' insecurité et condition de vie difficiles dans les mulieux ruraux .des lors nous constatons donc suivant l' evalution de population que la tendance que suit la population demeure croissante.

The hidden beauty of Congo

The economic environment (of South Kivu ) in the DRC is very developed; companies that were once the pride of the country have closed. Yet one comes across some industrial activities with a slow development, such as the company producing beer and soft drink, drug production, production of mattress, handmade soap, sheets, or bread.

Besides such organisations, international and local NGOs provide some jobs to the population in Bukavu; the formal sector.

This situation was consolidated following the disintegration and dislocation of the banking system, the low production and lack of general employment policy. Such situation leaves us with the impression that the province of South Kivu is poor.

The rural exodus is due to the insecurity and poor living conditions in rural areas. Therefore we notice, according to the evaluation of population, that the poverty trend which follows the growing population.
