Great Lakes: DRC Signs Protocol with TMEA to Strengthen Trade Links with Member States of the East African Community

In order to facilitate the facilitation of cross-border trade in the Great Lakes region, the Democratic Republic of Congo signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the NGO TradeMark East Africa (TMEA). A partnership that will facilitate investment in already available resources such as lake transport and facilitate the adoption of information and communication technologies (ICT) along the eastern DRC.

Through this agreement, TMEA( Trade Mark East Africa), a trade facilitation institution, will replicate and consolidate its success in contributing to the facilitation of cross-border trade, and even more so in this case, to invest in already available resources such as lake transport and Facilitating the adoption of information and communication technologies (ICTs) along the eastern DRC. The Government of the Netherlands has made a commitment of $ 6.7 million to launch related projects.

The projects will include: dredging and rehabilitation of the port of Kalundu on Lake Tanganyika, support for cross-border trade, which will involve capacity building and implementation of integrated border management systems at Rusizi border crossings between Rwanda and the City of Bukavu; The rehabilitation of the ports of Kasenyi (on the DRC side) and Ntoroko (on the Uganda side) and the infrastructure works at the Goli border crossing (on the Uganda side) - Mahagi (DRC side).

TMEA's commitment to the DRC will consolidate the benefits of a similar intervention it has facilitated in East Africa, particularly in the region's main transport routes, including the North Corridor from Mombasa and linking Uganda, Rwanda, DRC and South Sudan; As well as the Central Corridor, linking the port of Dar es Salaam to Rwanda, Burundi and eastern DRC by road and lake transport.

During a visit to the Presidency of the Democratic Republic of Congo, after the signing ceremony, the Head of State's Cabinet Director, Nehemiah Wilondja said: "Trade is a way to reduce conflict and unemployment. The agreement will help train cross-border merchants on trade issues related to exporting and exploiting regional markets. This will benefit our young people. "

In his speech, the Director General of TMEA, Mr. David Stanton, expressed optimistically that the DRC will benefit more easily from cross-border trade through the intervention of TMEA. He said: "TMEA has built a successful partnership with Governments and companies in ECA partner countries to reduce trade costs along key transport corridors - which reach the border with the DRC. We want to go further by replicating the successful initiatives in the DRC in order to ensure that the Congolese companies are competitive and that the benefits of trade along these corridors are spreading in the DRC "

The training of border agents and cross-border traders, especially women, has fostered the cordial relations between these two main players in cross-border trade and has strengthened mutual trust. It has enabled traders not only to efficiently identify and exploit local markets, but their increased knowledge of regional markets means that they meet customs requirements without difficulty. Combined, these efforts considerably reduce the time and costs involved in the transit of commercial goods along major transport corridors, enabling firms not only to diversify their products but also to meet market needs, employment.

The new agreement will strengthen trade links between ECA and the DRC.
Grands Lacs: la RDC signe un protocole avec TMEA visant a renforcé les liens commerciaux avec les États membres de la Communauté Est Africaine

Dans le but de contribuer à la facilitation du commerce transfrontalier dans la région des grands lacs, la République Démocratique du Congo a signé un protocole d’entente avec l'ONG TradeMark East Africa (TMEA). Un partenariat qui permettra de faciliter les investissements dans des ressources déjà disponibles comme le transport lacustre et faciliter l’adoption des technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC) le long de la région Est de la RDC.

Au travers de cet accord, TMEA, une institution de facilitation du commerce, reproduira et consolidera son succès à contribuer dans la facilitation du commerce transfrontalier, et plus encore dans le cas présent, à investir dans des ressources déjà disponibles comme le transport lacustre et à faciliter l'adoption des technologies de l'information et de la communication (TIC) le long de la région Est de la RDC. Le Gouvernement des Pays-Bas a pris un engagement de 6,7 millions de dollars pour lancer des projets y relatifs.

Les projets comprendront: le dragage et la réhabilitation du port de Kalundu sur le lac Tanganyika, le soutien au commerce transfrontalier, qui impliquera le renforcement des capacités ainsi que la mise en œuvre de systèmes intégrés de gestion des frontières aux postes frontaliers de Rusizi entre le Rwanda et la ville de Bukavu; la réhabilitation des ports de Kasenyi (coté RDC) et Ntoroko (coté Ouganda) et enfin les travaux d'infrastructure au poste frontalier de Goli (coté Ouganda) - Mahagi (coté RDC).

L'engagement de TMEA auprès de la RDC permettra de consolider les avantages résultant d'une intervention similaire qu'elle a facilitée en Afrique de l'Est, surtout au niveau des routes principales de transport de la région, notamment le Corridor Nord allant de Mombasa et reliant l'Ouganda, le Rwanda, la RDC et le Sud Soudan ; ainsi que le Corridor Central, reliant le port de Dar es Salaam au Rwanda, au Burundi et à l'Est de la RDC par transport routier et lacustre.

Lors d'une visite à la Présidence de la République Démocratique du Congo, après la cérémonie de signature, le Directeur de Cabinet du Chef de l’Etat, Prof. Néhémie Wilondja a déclaré que : « le commerce est un moyen de réduire les conflits et le chômage. L'accord contribuera à la formation des commerçants transfrontaliers sur des questions commerciales, relatives à l'exportation et à l'exploitation des marchés régionaux. Cela profitera particulièrement à nos jeunes ».

Dans son allocution, le Directeur Général de TMEA, Mr. David Stanton, a exprimé avec optimisme, que la RDC bénéficiera à effectuer plus aisément le commerce transfrontalier, grâce à l’intervention de TMEA. Il a ainsi déclaré: « TMEA a établi un partenariat fructueux avec les Gouvernements et les entreprises des pays partenaires de la CEA afin de réduire les coûts du commerce le long des principaux corridors de transport - qui arrivent jusqu'à la frontière avec la RDC. Nous voulons maintenant aller plus loin, en reproduisant les initiatives réussies en RDC dans le but de faire en sorte que les entreprises congolaises soient compétitives et que les avantages du commerce le long de ces corridors se répandent en RDC »

La formation des agents frontaliers et des commerçants transfrontaliers, en particulier les femmes, a favorisé les relations cordiales entre ces deux principaux acteurs du commerce transfrontalier et a renforcé une confiance mutuelle. Il a permis aux commerçants non seulement d'identifier et d'exploiter efficacement les marchés locaux, mais leur connaissance accrue sur les marchés régionaux signifie qu'ils répondent aux exigences douanières sans difficultés. Combinés, ces efforts réduisent considérablement le temps et les couts nécessaires au transit des biens commerciaux le long des principaux corridors de transport et permettent aux entreprises non seulement de diversifier leurs produits, mais aussi de pourvoir les besoins du marché, créant ainsi des opportunités d'emploi.

Le nouvel accord renforcera les liens commerciaux entre la CEA et la RDC.

Rwanda, DR Congo agree to enhance bilateral trade ties

Rwanda and DR Congo have affirmed commitment to strengthen bilateral trade ties between the two countries.

This was one of the outcomes from a weekend meeting between François Kanimba, the Minister for Trade, Industry and East African Community Affairs, and Aimé Boji Sangara Bamanyirwe, DR Congo’s Minister for Commerce.

The meeting took place in the eastern DR Congo town of Bukavu, and discussed trade facilitation between the two countries.

The two ministers committed to instruct relevant institutions to refrain from creating tariffs and non-tariff barriers for trade between the two countries, according to a communiqué issued at the end of the meeting.

Speaking to The New Times on Monday Kanimba said that “the momentum is good” as the two countries look to further boost cross-border trade and particularly empower hundreds of small-scale cross-border traders on both sides.

We are enhancing trade and the Congolese are very friendly and want to improve the trade relationship,” Kanimba told The New Times.

The statement indicates that the Congolese minister “clearly stated” that no other institutions should introduce trade barriers on the Congolese side without due consultations.

Such decisions, he noted, should only be taken by central government in Kinshasa.

An action plan to implement the decisions and trade facilitation between the two countries was adopted and approved by the two ministers.

Kanimba said: “We put in place a joint committee that will meet regularly and discuss progress. By end of June we must have agreed on the action plan to start being implemented by our customs officials.

While it is noted that the ministerial committee will meet twice a year to evaluate the progress, another specialised committee at the borders – which should meet at least four times and report on progress –was created to jointly implement related decisions.

For manufactured products, the two countries need to first conclude the format of certificates of origin, as well as agree on the procedure and this should be done by June.

The two countries are collaborating on the implementation of a simplified clearance procedure under Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), known as the Simplified Trade Regime (STR).

The COMESA, a regional free trade area with 20 member states stretching from Swaziland to Libya, came up with a simplified customs clearance procedure for Member States that would be used by small-scale cross-border traders to facilitate easy import and export of their goods.

The STR was introduced to address the problems faced by small-scale cross-border traders, such as, lack of knowledge and information on the benefits of trading with other COMESA countries; complex documents and complicated processes of filling the current forms; increased clearance costs; and delays in the clearing of goods and processing of tax refunds.

The STR intends to overcome these challenges by simplifying the whole process of clearing goods for small-scale cross-border traders by way of, among others, introducing a simplified certificate of origin which should be signed and stamped by a customs official at the border post for all goods that appear on the common list; a simplified customs document; and a common list of qualifying goods.

The common list will be gazetted by each Member State and notified to the general public, especially by being displayed at all border posts within COMESA.

During the official launch of the Simplified Trade Regime, last October, Kanimba and Nefertiti Ngudianza Bayokisa Kisula, the Congolese Minister for Trade, met in Rwanda’s western ton of Rubavu and signed a related memorandum of understanding.

The MoU sought to ease small-scale trading by waiving import duty on products whose worth is below $2000 (about Rwf1.6 million).

Officials then drew a list 168 products – agricultural, livestock, fisheries, construction, cosmetics and manufactured products – and agreed that a joint periodic review be conducted every six months to see if there are products to add or remove.

According to figures from the ministry, in 2015, trade between Rwanda and DR Congo amounted to $164,5 million. Between 2014 and 2015, formal trade between the two countries increased by 15 per cent.

Posted Friday, May 5 2017 at 10:59

Rwanda is the world’s largest producer of tantalum, accounting for over one-third of the mineral traded on the international market, according to the latest Minerals Commodity Summaries published by the United States Geological Survey.

Rwanda accounted for about 37 per cent of the global tantalum production while DR Congo accounted for about 32 per cent in 2015, the survey indicates.


Tantalum is an essential mineral for electronics industries in the manufacture of capacitors, high-power resistors, jet engines and missile components.


The total value of tantalum produced in 2016 was over $290 million, according to the survey.

Rwanda also produces a quarter of the world’s niobium, a mineral used by over 80 per cent of the world’s steel industries to strengthen their steel products.

It also states that Rwanda was 7th and 12th biggest exporter of tungsten and tin ores, respectively.


Rwanda has been positioning itself to become a significant player on the global mining scene, although it is still bogged down by exportation of unprocessed minerals that attract low prices.

The mining sector is Kigali’s second-largest foreign currency earner, after tourism.


“The world now recognises that we are a major producer of a very important mineral,” said Jean Malic Kalima, president of the Rwanda Mining Association. “By joining the international study centre, we will broaden our market base and work more closely with tantalum experts, in a bid to boost the value and volume of our exports.”

Prices of tantalum have been falling over the past five years. Whereas a kilogramme cost about $280 in 2012, it halved to $124 per kilogramme in January 2017. Rwanda produced 410 tonnes of tantalum in 2015.


Coupled with significant price drops for other principle minerals (tin and wolfram), revenues from Rwanda’s mineral exports fell from $226 million in 2013 to $206 million in 2014 and $150 million in 2015.

They climbed a bit for the for first time in three years to $166.4 million last year, owing largely to the exportation of non-principle minerals, which collected have of those revenues.


Of Rwanda’s three principal minerals, tantalum collected the most revenues last year – with $39.7 million from the export of 1,270 tonnes.

Nord-Kivu : La Lucha exige le départ de Maman Sidiku pour incompétence

Les jeunes du mouvement citoyen Lutte pour le Changement, Lucha, étaient ce mercredi 31 mai au bureau de la Monusco/Goma pour le dépôt d’un mémorandum qui exige le départ du représentant spécial du Secrétaire Général des Nations-Unies en République Démocratique du Congo suite à la légèreté avec laquelle la Monusco traite le dossier de l’insécurité qui prévaut au Kasaï Central avec les Kamwina Nsapu.

Dans ce mémorandum réceptionné par Daniel Ruiz chef de bureau de la Monusco/Goma, ces jeunes de la Lucha estiment que la force onusienne devient inefficace et donc inutile après avoir passé plus de 15 ans en RDC, car la situation sécuritaire va de mal en pis.

La Lutte pour le Changement, exige dans son mémo, le remplacement de Maman Sidikou en RDC pour incompétence.

Ils souhaitent cependant que ce dernier soit remplacé par une personnalité compétente plus engagée, plus rigoureuse, en mesure d’aider à relever les défis politique et sécuritaire. Car, la restauration de la confiance entre la population et la Monusco en dépend, selon Lucha.

Ces jeunes, demandent par ailleurs, à la Cour Pénale Internationale de diligenter une enquête indépendante dans les tueries au Kasaï suite au phénomène Kamwina Nsapu pour que les auteurs de ces massacres répondent de leurs actes et soient punis conformément à la loi.

Africa does not have a single tradition, nor does Cong
Kivu is always innovative and inspirations frm others and in adoptong programs that are in best interest of their development.

It was the idea of the provicial assembly president (according to the Governo and the governor aknoldged that people will need to be educated on the benefits of this property tax system0

Good thing about Federalis is that is that no city or province has the obligations to do extactly like all others.

Once people see the fruits of property taxes, then they will be willing to pay.

North-Kivu: Julien Paluku alerts the army on "a new war that is on the horizon"

The governor of North Kivu, Julien Paluku, fears that the recent armed attacks recorded in the northern part of his province predicts a new war. According to him, these attacks are not carried out by local armed groups as it is currently admitted.

"I warn that the situation in Beni now exceeds the level of the armed groups, especially the Armed Forces Headquarters, so that the General Staff focuses its strategies on a new war that 'Horizon,' Mr Paluku told Radio Okapi on Tuesday.

The governor points out that the latest attacks are likely to lead to the belief that "these are local armed groups when it is a great war that wants to begin." In particular, he points out that armed men who recently attacked Kabasha, Kasindi and Beni are more resistant to the army's response than local armed groups.

Julien Paluku also notes that attacks are being launched against several agglomerations at the same time.

"This denotes a supply of ammunition and heavy weapons. However, Maï-Maï groups are not able to do this in many cities at the same time, "he explains.

Several recent armed attacks have been reported in the north of North Kivu province, resulting in numerous casualties.

Ten days ago, a man claiming to speak on behalf of an unknown rebel movement on Monday claimed responsibility for deadly clashes between a militia and the Congolese army in that part of the province. The man said to name himself John Mangaiko and his group would be called National Movement for the revolution (MNR).
Nord-Kivu: Julien Paluku alerte l’armée sur «une nouvelle guerre qui pointe à l’horizon»

Le gouverneur du Nord-Kivu, Julien Paluku, redoute que les récentes attaques armées recensées dans la partie Nord de sa province ne présage une nouvelle guerre. Selon lui, ces attaques ne sont pas le fait des groupes armés locaux comme il est actuellement admis.

«Je lance cette alerte, particulièrement à l’Etat-major des forces armées que ce qui se passe à Beni désormais dépasse le niveau des simples groupes armés, pour que l’Etat-major focalise ses stratégies sur une nouvelle guerre qui pointe à l’horizon», a déclaré mardi 27 juin M. Paluku à Radio Okapi.

Le gouverneur souligne que les dernières attaques risquent de faire croire «qu’il s’agit des groupes armés locaux alors qu’il s’agit d’une grande guerre qui veut commencer». Il fait observer notamment que les hommes armés qui ont récemment attaqué à Kabasha, Kasindi et Beni résistent mieux à la riposte de l’armée que les groupes armés locaux.

Julien Paluku note également que des attaques sont lancées contre plusieurs agglomérations à la fois.

«Ce qui dénote un approvisionnement en munitions et armes lourdes. Or, les groupes Maï-Maï ne sont pas capables de le faire dans beaucoup d’agglomérations au même moment», explique-t-il.

Plusieurs attaques armées ont été récemment recensées dans le Nord de la province du Nord-Kivu, faisant de nombreuses victimes.

Il y a une dizaine de jour, un homme affirmant parler au nom d'un mouvement rebelle inconnu jusque-là a revendiqué lundi la responsabilité d'affrontements meurtriers ayant opposé une milice et l'armée congolaise dans cette partie de la province. L’homme dit se nommer John Mangaiko et son groupe s’appellerait Mouvement national pour la révolution (MNR).

East Congo militia violence forces 80,000 to flee home, U.N. says

KINSHASA (Reuters) - About 80,000 people have fled fighting between the Democratic Republic of Congo army and a new rebel coalition, the United Nations said on Tuesday, joining the millions already uprooted in Africa's worst displacement crisis.

Militia violence has intensified across Congo since President Joseph Kabila refused to step down at the end of his constitutional mandate in December, raising fears the country will slide back into the wars at the turn of the century that killed millions.

The latest fighting broke out in South Kivu province's Fizi territory, in the eastern part of the country. Government troops clashed with the National Coalition of the People for the Sovereignty of Congo (CNPSC), a new alliance of local self-defence militias, the U.N. Organization for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a new report.

The rebels seized several towns last month before being beaten back by government troops, according to the army, which said at least a dozen people were killed in the clashes [nL3N1JU48L].

Conflict has forced more than 1.5 million Congolese to flee their homes this year, far more than in Iraq or Syria. More than 3,000 have died since last October in an insurrection against the government in central Congo's Kasai region

Altogether, 3.8 million Congolese are internally displaced, more than in any other African country, according to OCHA. Some 7.3 million need humanitarian assistance.

OCHA also warned that tit-for-tat attacks between competing communities in South Kivu risked reviving inter-ethnic tensions that have fuelled repeated conflicts.

The conflict in Congo has been aggravated by Kabila's refusal to leave office. In power since 2001, he was required by the constitution to step down in December, but an election to replace him was postponed after delays registering millions of voters.
