Edito of Mining and Business Magazine N°20
Everything seems so calm and so peaceful in our beautiful country since mid-August! And even if we all followed this suspense series with passion, having seen the last episode finally makes it possible to start another show which, we hope, won’t be based on (political) science fiction.

This new academic year, rich in economic events, should demonstrate this.

Kolwezi will open the ball with its mining conference from 5–7 September. The Mining &

Business team will be attending the event in the cobalt capital of the world and promises a full debriefing in our next issue.

As usual in September, Kinshasa shines under the spotlight with, one after the other, ExpoBeton, Sultani Makutano 4 and the Start-up week. M&B, media partner of this fourth annual fair business network forum, will, of course, report back to you in November.

Beautiful pages of history with the moving testimony of Jean Claude Masangu who remembers the tribulations of the birth of the Congolese Franc in an open-hearted interview.

Good news for the Congolese economy from Promines, Kivu and Congo Airways. M&B will analyse them in detail.

Nothing being perfect in this world, stock exchanges have outperformed this past month, and we analyse the causes of this phenomenon by linking this fall to that of the Yuan.

Scoop of this issue: an in-depth investigation into the acquisition strategies of Congolese Luc Gérard. It smells like gold!

Finally, a word of encouragement to our little ones and their parents, who are supposed to slowly but surely return to work after a welldeserved vacation!

Happy back-to-school season!
